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 National Competitions

Our regional competitions for this year are completed so the focus is on our upcoming two day national competitions. Due to restrictions on event size and potential lockdown disruption, we have decided to not go ahead with a combined National competition, where instead we will run single skill national competitions. As a result of recent lockdowns we have rescheduled some competition dates and postponed others.
Our latest national skill competitions and dates are:

Welding: 4th and 5th of December 2021 at Toi Ohomai in Tauranga
Aircraft Maintenance: 4th and 5th of March 2022, at the Airforce Museum in Christchurch
