Skills competitions

The ETF will work with the sector to embed skills competitions into the employer landscape, and the core business of vocational and technical providers to further enhance the quality of VET.

This will be achieved by:

  • using the international standards of competitions together with professional standards to help the sector achieve excellence
  • providing CPD programmes to develop the understanding and use of competitions for professional practice, especially assessment
  • holding a skills competitions event to showcase excellence
  • supporting the selection and training of Team UK and related international activities with other national partners to ensure the reputation of the UK FE sector worldwide.
