UK’s ‘Skills Olympics’ bid well on track

The UK’s bid to host the next ‘Skills Olympics’ has drawn positive reactions from many of the countries who will vote to decide the host nation, according to the UK’s official delegate.

Chris Humphries, chairman of UK Skills, is charged with convincing countries across the world that the UK should host the 2011 World Skills Competition, ahead of a formal bid in May.

The event will see 1,000 20- to 22-year-olds compete for their countries to show they are the best in the world in their speciality – from traditional skills such as plumbing to modern trades including web design.

Humphries has already visited countries across Asia.
