WorldSkills Ireland 2022 is a partnership between enterprise, industry, education, training and government that raises the profile and recognition of skills and apprenticeships and prepares the talent of today for the careers of the future.
Believing that ‘skills drive the future’, WorldSkills know that choosing careers is one of the most important decisions a young person will make. So, where do young students go to get hands-on experience and learn about skills-based careers?
Over three action-packed days, WorldSkills Ireland fostered an atmosphere of experimentation and discovery through competitions, interactive events and demonstrations.
