Skillfridge competition cycle postponed to 2021

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation and with the safety of competitors, judges and supporters paramount, Skillfridge will not be going ahead for 2020. 

The wider WorldSkills organisation, which Skillfridge is a part of, has taken the decision not to go ahead with WorldSkills UK LIVE this year instead scheduling it for 18-20th November 2021, when it will return to the NEC. 

The organisation said in a statement: 'We will use the time not engaged in running physical competitions, to stay engaged with our network of employers, colleges and training providers, review our competitions and strengthen their quality, reach and impact for 2021 so we can help more young people achieve higher skills.  

'However, we remain committed to reach and impact as many young people as possible this year. That is why we are developing two exciting digital projects that will provide educators and young people with access to world class training that is usually only available to Team UK. We are also creating new resources that will help educators harness the training methods used in competitions to help more young people develop higher quality skills. We aim to reach over 80,000 young people through these activities.'
