Held every other year, the EuroSkills competition is the European championship in vocational skills. In the EuroSkills competition, vocational students and those who have already received their qualifications test their mettle in over 50 events.
EuroSkills emphasises team events and new professions. Competitors must be 18-25 years of age. This wide age range allows both young talent and experienced veterans to participate in the competition. Experts, who serve as judges in the competition, must possess a high level of professional skill. Naturally, there are no age restrictions for experts.
Finnish youths who have achieved the greatest success in coaching compete in EuroSkills. Youths are selected for coaching based on recommendations made by vocational education providers. All interested parties are welcome to participate. Skills Finland makes the final selection of competitors for the national team.
