Local Heroes – celebrating the people behind our inspirational young competitors

Each year, thousands of young people are registered to take part in our competitions and our Local Hero Awards celebrate the achievements of the amazing professionals who make this possible.

We want to honour the committed individuals in colleges, training providers and businesses who promote the benefits of competitions to their students, apprentices and senior management, and engage them in competition activity. Without these Local Heroes, our competitors would not have been inspired to get involved in competitions that help them develop their skills and kick-start their careers.

You can find out more information and how to nominate your Local Heroes here:


Winners will be announced in the final medal ceremony at WorldSkills UK LIVE 2018 at the NEC, Birmingham on Saturday 17 November.
