Thirty students from Dublin have secured a place in the prestigious national finals of WorldSkills Ireland, taking place at the RDS.

The country’s largest experiential skills, apprenticeships, and careers event, the 30 Dubliners will compete against over 180 other young people from across the country in a range of skills-based trades, including automation, robotics, constructions skills and culinary arts next week. 

Over three action-packed days, Worldskills Ireland will facilitate an atmosphere of experimentation and discovery through competitions, interactive events and demonstrations. It is an event that will inspire the next generation of skilled young people to follow their passions, interests and talents for the securement of their own future, and of Ireland’s. 

Minister Collins TD commented “WorldSkills Live is an excellent promotional event for apprenticeships and traineeships in Ireland, showing that they are attractive routes for young people to gain an internationally recognised qualification and to develop up to date and relevant skills.”

“I’m also thrilled to say we have a track record of significant success at the competition, and for that, we should be very proud, but I think it is also important that Ireland’s achievements in practical skills are recognised at home. WorldSkills Ireland 2022 provides an opportunity to demonstrate the breadth of options available to learners in practical education and training.”

Taking place from September 13 to September 15, over 15,000 visitors are expected to attend the free event at the RDS. 

Registration for the event is now open at worldskillsireland.ie
