2014 Worldskills Australia National Competition

Sharon Bird, Shadow Minister for Vocational Education, and Alannah MacTiernan, Federal Member for Perth, today wished students competing at the 2014 WorldSkills Australia National Competition in Perth over the next three days all the very best for the competition.

“WorldSkills is a great opportunity for 500 of Australia’s best trainees, apprentices and students to showcase their skills and compete amongst the best in over 50 skills and trade areas,” Sharon Bird said.

“This competition gives our students the opportunity to demonstrate the power and challenge of a trades career.  

“It’s terrific to have WorkSkills back in Perth,” Alannah MacTiernan said.

“While a lot of people focus on WA’s important mining sector, it’s great to have this showcase here, highlighting the broad range of skilled jobs we must promote and develop to ensure a resilient, dynamic economy.

“We wish all the competitors all the very best for the competition.”
