When will the competitions be held? 

Unfortunately, due health and safety concerns around covid-19, the LIVE 2020 competition has been postponed until 18th-20th November 2021. City of Glasgow College and WorldSkills UK see this as an opportunity to prepare for and deliver a more impactful national final next year.  We continue to engage and support our 2020 cohort to enhance the skills already developed through local competitions, challenge events, masterclasses and virtual bootcamps.  These events are supported by our world-class trainers, coaches and visiting international experts.   We continue to engage in our intensive training programme for Euroskills, Graz and Shanghai 2021.

Why is training required? 

The skills demanded by WorldSkills UK competitions are at a high standard of excellence set by international experts.

What training will I receive and when? 

Your trainer has been in touch regarding arrangements for remote training to take place to fit in with your current course and personal commitments. 

Given this delay, how will I access training after I leave college in June? 

Each successful entrant to the programme is enrolled with the WorldSkills Academy at COGC, and has access to support and training up to competition date no matter whether they have moved on to employment or to university.

When will training commence? 

Arrangements are being made to have training commence online or a blended learning approach.

Your participation in WorldSkills competitions will be ground-breaking for the college and an opportunity to showcase your skills to prospective employers in the future.
