The history of WorldSkills international movement
The movement WorldSkills International (WSI) originated in the post-war years in Spain (1947), when the world was sorely lacking skilled labor. The first championships were held in order to popularize the working professions and enhance their prestige. Today, it is an effective tool for training personnel in accordance with world standards and the needs of new high-tech industries.
Under the auspices of WorldSkills regional, national and world championships, as well as continental championships are held. Participants improve their skills by competing in six blocks of professions: civil engineering, information and communication technologies, creativity and design, industrial production, services and civilian transport services.
In the half century of the international movement, 79 countries have joined WorldSkills. Russia did this in 2012. For six years, about 500 regional, corporate, university and national championships with over 100,000 participants have been held. The total number of spectators approached 1.6 million people.
