The Visual Connections association is again sponsoring sign industry apprentices competing in this week’s three-day WorldSkills Australia national championships in Melbourne.


“Visual Connections is pleased to once again be sponsoring sign & graphics apprentices and trainees to take part in the WorldSkills Australia National Championships,” thetrade  association said said. “This is a great initiative to encourage the next generation of industry professionals and we look forward to seeing them in Melbourne.”

Over three days (August 17-19), WorldSkills Australia and the Victorian Careers and Employment Expo are taking over the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre to showcase the very best of Australian skills excellence and career pathways.


“Visitors will get to witness the country’s best trainees and apprentices go head-to-head in high-pressure skills competition, try out skills for themselves at dozens of Try’aSkill booths, and chat to training organisations, employers and industry experts about the exciting opportunities vocational education and training can offer,” said WorldSkills.

‘The main way we support skills excellence in Australia is through our skills competitions – which we’ve been running for over 40 years. Skill competitions happen at a regional, national and international level, and allow young people to benchmark their skill level against their peers.



“Competitors who do well at a regional competition are invited to compete at the national championships, where tens of thousands of spectators watch Australia’s best trades and skills talent compete. From there, you may even be asked to join the Skills Squad, where you’ll have the opportunity to travel internationally and test yourself against the best trades and skills talent in the world."

Tickets for the 2023 WorldSkills Australia National Championships & Skills Show are now open for both school groups and general public.

Tickets are free, and guarantee you entry to both the WorldSkills Australia National Championships & Skills Show, and the Victorian Careers and Employment Expo.
