Every two years, WorldSkills organises the world championships of vocational skills. The Russian city of Kazan is the venue for this year’s 45th edition, which will be attended by around 1,400 participants from almost 70 countries. The event brings together young people from all over the world, who come to have a chance at winning a prestigious medal in their chosen trade. The four-day competition will take place at the Kazan Expo International Exhibition Centre, which was built specially for WorldSkills. The participants represent the best in their class and were selected through qualifying competitions held in WorldSkills member countries and regions.
Doka is delighted to once again be taking part in the WorldSkills world championships of vocational skills and, for the third time (2015, 2017 and 2019), to be sponsoring the entire “Concrete Construction Work” competition in the "Construction and Building Technology” category. As a sponsor, Doka is not only providing the materials in the form of Frami Xlife framed formwork, but is also contributing to this international competition which reinforces the reputation of the dual system of vocational training and puts young, well-trained specialists in the limelight. A total of nine countries, each with two participants, will compete: Austria, Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Kazakhstan, Russia and Sweden. The next championships will take place in 2021 in Shanghai, China.
