Throughout its 65 year history, the Competition brings together the best young people from around the world in their chosen profession. They represent the best students selected in local and national skills competitions for professional education.

The event also provides contact and exchange of information on best practices in professional education among industry leaders, governments and education experts. The experience and the results of all of the competitions provide valuable feedback to the Competitors, their countries or regions of origin and businesses and schools in which they are being trained. In each Competition, delegations aspire to ever-higher results, while the Competitors are role models to inspire school children to engage in technical and skilled careers.
