Team Switzerland


40 young professionals, of which 8 are women, will represent Switzerland in the WorldSkills 2015 competition in São Paulo, in which they will prove their expertise in 38 professions. After intense individual training and various weekends focusing on teamwork, the candidates are all ready and highly motivated to give their best at the competition.

Member Organization

There is a 60-year-old tradition of skills championships in Switzerland. Today, the SwissSkills association – which is funded by the state, cantons, schools and professional organisations – enables young professionals to participate in international competitions. On a national level, SwissSkills coordinates the Swiss championships, which covers over 60 professions. Through its activities, the association increases the prestige of vocational training in the public eye and promotes it as an attractive option for high school graduates.
