WorldSkills competition venues & candidates required

WorldSkills London 2011

Festo have been sponsors for the Mechatronics competition of WorldSkills, since it was introduced in 1991.  We are now looking for a limited number of regional centres to form a hub of regional Mechatronics competition centres.  Together with UKSkills we are able to offer assistance with all the organisational details setting the competition tasks, judging and the marketing of the event.  All applicants need to do is provide the venue, and assist UKSkills and Festo in finding competitors to compete from your customer base.

The regional competitions will take place annually, with an age limit of 24.  The two individual winners from each regional final progressing to the National Final hosted at Festo in Northampton.  The two individual winners of the National competition will then be put forward to represent the UK in Mechatronics at the World Finals, which are in Japan in 2007, Canada in 2009 and London in 2011.

Due to time limitations, to prepare for Japan, we have decided this year to run a major National Final in October 2006, which provides potential host applicants an ideal opportunity to see what the regional competition could do for you in future years.
