WorldSkills 51: engaging Champions beyond the Competition
Twenty-three Champions from 13 different countries came together in Lucerne, Switzerland to discuss the ways in which they can be engaged with WorldSkills beyond the Competition. Through a variety of interactive sessions, Champions learned how to be a WorldSkills spokesperson by spreading WorldSkills key messages, improve their interview and presentation skills and to be involved in an official capacity at the Competition level. Champions were also introduced to the WorldSkills Foundation and how to design, write and present a project plan.
“Following the Competition, we felt there was a lack of engagement, involvement, continuation and purpose as a Champion,” said Victor Simon from France who competed in WorldSkills Leipzig 2013 in Manufacturing Team Challenge. “The development of the Champions Trust will help keep our passion alive and growing into the future.”
