The nation’s largest and most prestigious skill and trade showcase is returning to Perth for the first time since 1989!

The 2014 WorldSkills Australia National Competition will be held at Perth’s Convention and Exhibition Centre between the 18th and 20th of September. With over 17,000 square metres of competition and exhibition space, there will be plenty of exciting and interactive activities to take part in.

The three day event will showcase the skills of 500 of Australia’s best trainees, apprentices and students competing for the prestigious title of ‘Nation’s Best’ in over 50 skill and trade areas ranging from the traditional trades such as plumbing, bricklaying and hairdressing to the more contemporary professions of web design and fashion technology.

Medallists from the National Competition, if eligible, may then be given the opportunity to represent their country as a Team Australia Skillaroo on the world stage at the 43rd WorldSkills International Competition to be held in São Paulo, Brazil in 2015.

The National Competition will also feature 30 interactive Try’aSkill programs, where visitors can try their hand at various skill and trade areas including hairdressing, carpentry, bricklaying and more.

Visitors will also be provided with the opportunity to explore hundreds of career options at the Skills West Expo held in conjunction with the National Competition.

Medallists from the National Competition are also encouraged to apply for one of the many scholarship pathways associated with WorldSkills Australia.
