Team United Kingdom


Team UK is made up of the UK’s top apprentices and learners.

The competitors were selected to represent the UK at WorldSkills after they excelled in the WorldSkills UK Skills Competitions, the finals of which are held at The Skills Show, the UK’s largest skills and careers event. During these Competitions, the competitors’ talent and determination stood out and they were asked to compete for a place in Squad UK. Training for 11 months as Squad UK, the 100 competitors came together in May 2015 to compete for a place in Team UK.

At WorldSkills São Paulo 2015, the 41 members of Team UK will compete in 37 skills. Each member of Team UK is supported in their training by a dedicated Training Manager and a Performance Coach.
