What Will You See At The WorldSkills Competition
On each day of the International Jewellery Fair in Sydney in August, there will be a separate WorldSkills Australia regional competition with students from WA, QLD, and VIC testing their skills.
Each competition will take one day to complete and individuals will be challenged against their peers to show who the best is in their chosen skill.
The competitions will test students’ abilities to make a set piece of jewellery to certain specifications within the allocated time.
Competitors will be required to undertake specific tasks to in order to complete the set project. This project is designed to test not only basic skills of the competitors, but also how they can innovate and explore new ideas.
