WorldSkills is a youth competition celebrating vocational qualifications. Participants ranging from 17 to 22 years of age, come together to demonstrate excellence in their professions and to promote the exchange of skills between young professionals from around the world.
New Zealand was represented by a team made up of 13 competitors in various trades ranging from aircraft maintenance to floristry. One silver medal and four Medallions of Excellence were achieved.
The next WorldSkills competition will take place in São Paulo in 2015.
