The WorldSkills Foundation (WSF) was established in 2011 with the aim to share the WorldSkills treasure beyond the WorldSkills Competition. This treasure represents the unique talents and expertise of our global network of WorldSkills Champions and Experts, contributing their energy and efforts to projects that can help improve lives around the world. Each WSF project is equipped with highly skilled professionals, supported by strategic global partnerships, and endorses our vision to improve our world with the power of skills. Our mission is to raise the profile and recognition of skilled people, and show how important skills are in achieving economic growth and personal success.
Through our partnerships so far, WSF has rolled out a series of innovative programmes and projects that support continued international education reform and health-related issues for countries in need. By collaborating with top TVET institutions, highly-regarded universities and industry partners, WSF promotes development of cutting-edge skills training methods and research to help nurture and build the workforce of the future.
