Welcome to WorldSkills New Zealand
Home of vocational skill competitions and much more
WorldSkills New Zealand is an independent, non-profit charitable trust founded in 1986, dedicated to encouraging excellence in vocational skills.
Many people know WorldSkills for its competitions. This is just one part of what we do. We focus on competitions and the promotion and development of vocational skills and occupations throughout New Zealand.
2021 Regional and National Competitions
Skills competitions provide employers, training providers, and industry with opportunity of upskilling and developing people from all backgrounds and abilities.
Our first regional is kicking off with the Southland competition in Invercargill later this month, with Northland region holding their competition in Whangarei in late May, and the Waikato event in Hamilton late June. We will soon be confirming dates for Bay of Plenty, Wellington, and Canterbury.
