Our work with WorldSkills

WorldSkills UK is part of an 80-strong global movement that supports young people in the workplace, and even hosts their own ‘Skills Olympics’! The first collaboration we had with them was at another large-scale event – WorldSkills UK Live, which is the biggest skills, careers and apprenticeships convention in the UK. 

 

Sharon explains how the event, held annually at the NEC in Birmingham, opened up new ways for our company to meet a wider audience: “It wasn’t just another careers show, it was significantly more than that. In taking part in WorldSkills UK LIVE we’ve been able to engage with young people from diverse backgrounds and inspire them in working towards fulfilling careers.” 

 

This early careers approach is important to our overall diversity and inclusion strategy. Firstly, we want to see more young females come into the business and aim for 50% of senior managers and above to be female. Secondly, we want more Black and Asian people to join the business and aim for 13% representation by 2025. Finally, we want more people from socially-deprived areas to join us.

 

We’ve now worked with WorldSkills UK on a number of initiatives to boost our commitments around inclusion and diversity, including sponsoring the WorldSkills UK Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Awards and being a member of the WorldSkills UK EDI Advisory Group.

 

Sharon sees these collaborations as a shared journey of continuous improvements: “Being partners supports each other and fits both our agendas. CCEP brings experience and big-player perspectives, and there are other sectors that CCEP can learn from.”
