Expectations of the SwissSkills team are high. After all, Switzerland is one of a select group of nations that has been most successful in the history of WorldSkills. In 2017, 20 team members won a medal, eleven of them being crowned a WorldSkills champion.
This year, Switzerland will once again field a highly talented team. At the WorldSkills 2019, which will take place in August in Kazan, Russia, 41 young professionals, supported by as many experts, will compete against the international elite in 40 competitions.
Since the start of the year, team members have been preparing for the big event both individually and together at four training camps. In addition to technical skills and abilities, the camps also focused on team building and mental and media training.
The world championship of skill
In 2019, the official world championship of vocational skills will be held in Russia. From 22 to 27 August, the best young professionals from across the globe will be competing at the WorldSkills Kazan 2019. A total of 1500 candidates from 77 countries and 56 professions will be present and over 200,000 visitors are expected.
As the presenting partner of the SwissSkills team, UBS wishes all the participants and the entire delegation every success.
