Thank you for your interest in the role of WorldSkills UK Director, Scotland.
WorldSkills UK is an accelerator for young people in the start-up phase of their careers. This means we inspire more young people to take up apprenticeships and technical education; we champion their success, creating world-class role models from all backgrounds; and we accelerate their personal and professional development.
We are an independent organisation that works with a network of experts from education and industry who have joined forces to help the UK go further, faster.
Scotland is in many ways the jewel in the crown of our family of UK nations that we represent at WorldSkills UK. Scottish colleges are consistently amongst the top performers in our national skills competitions; and Scotland’s young people consistently achieve the world-class benchmark when we compete internationally.
We are looking for someone who can champion WorldSkills UK to Scottish government, politicians, colleges, employers and other key stakeholders to help ensure Scotland’s young people continue to have the opportunity to thrive nationally and internationally.
We think this is an incredibly exciting and rewarding opportunity for a candidate with a passion for transforming the future of Scottish young people, the ability to use and grow a Scottish network to raise the profile of WorldSkills UK and to make the case for investment by government and business to transform lives. If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you.
Dr Neil Bentley-Gockmann OBE
