Kangan Institute hosts Global Skills Challenge

Kangan Institute hosts Global Skills Challenge Image

Docklands’ Kangan Institute was one of a select few Victorian TAFE institutes to host the 2019 Global Skills Challenge at the start of April.

The competition was Australia’s biggest international skills excellence competition for the year, and saw 500 competitors and officials from 15 different countries and 24 different skills competitions.

The event provided an opportunity to showcase the Kangan Institute’s training facilities and for teachers to exchange ideas about best practice with some of the world’s best teachers and trainers.

The competition included a range of different trades and skills, from carpentry and cookery through to 3D game design and cloud computing.

Victorian skills commissioner Neil Coulson said events such as this were “real opportunities for these students to showcase the skills they have learnt on a national stage”.

“This event highlights the level of proficiency achieved by Australian apprentices in their chosen trade and allows the apprentices to challenge themselves against their contemporaries,” he said.

The competition was the final selection process for the WorldSkills International Championships in Russia in August, where competitors will compete in front of an audience of 250,000.

WorldSkills Australia CEO Brett Judd said Australia was regarded as a high performing Vocational Education Nation, and we were currently 10th on the WorldSkills rankings after the 2017 International Championships.
