WorldSkills Australia has some great news – we are still going ahead with the WorldSkills National Championships and Skills Show 2020, but it has been moved to 2021!

“In light of restrictions now in place in response to coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made the decision to postpone the WorldSkills Australia National Championships and Skills Show 2020 proudly funded by the Government of Western Australia. We are thrilled that we have been able to secure alternative event dates with the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre and cannot wait to bring all the excitement and exhilarating competition of the WorldSkills Australia National Championships to Perth in 2021’’ said Trevor Schwenke, CEO, WorldSkills Australia.

Get ready to continue your support of our young Australians in Perth from Thursday 29 April – Saturday 01 May 2021, with the Closing Ceremony held on the evening of Sunday 02 May 2021.

Further International competitors will now be invited to compete to assist with the final selection process for the 2021 Skillaroos where they will represent Australia at the upcoming 46th WorldSkills International Championships.

KEY DATES – 2021
28 April:                     Familiarisation & Opening Ceremony
29 April to 1 May:   Competition Dates

We understand that this decision will be disappointing for some of our community, but we also know that it is in the best interests of everyone involved in the event and we appreciate the understanding and support of our generous WorldSkills community, at this time. We look forward to seeing you all face-to-face at Australia’s largest trades and skills competition in 2021!’’ concluded Schwenke.
