At the WorldSkills Competition you had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet, work alongside and share some great moments with young people from across the world. You may have only been at the Competition for a couple of weeks, but the memories will last forever. Why not continue the adventure?

Living in another country is something not everyone is lucky enough to experience. By taking part in the WorldSkills Champions Exchange for 3 -12 months, you’ll gain more knowledge about your skill, have a greater understanding about other cultures, see new places, make new friends and enrich your life – both personally and professionally.

At the end of the exchange you’ll return home with new ideas, skills and techniques to enhance your career, and interesting stories to share with those around you.

The WorldSkills Champions Exchange is the next step in your global skills future.

Why are you taking part in the WorldSkills Champions Exchange?
Because I was given the opportunity to be involved with something only a handful of people in the world are given. I believe that opportunities like this only come once in a life time and you should grab them with both hands.
