Vicat: Skill Partner for WorldSkills France 2022
Vicat is keen to support the training of young people wishing to take up a vocation in the construction industry, and has entered into an agreement with Worldskills France—previously known as COFOM (French Vocational Olympics Committee)—which organizes the world’s largest vocational competition.
The WorldSkills Competition organized every two years by WorldSkills International is the largest vocational competition in the world. It sees young professionals from throughout the world measuring up against each other in an international event held at a single location. Youth, sharing, hard work, commitment, fair play, excellence, open-mindedness and respect for cultural diversity are the keywords that sum up the WorldSkills Competition.
The commitment to this competition is a reflection of the Group’s determination to encourage the transmission of French know-how and to promote the strengths of all the construction and industrial vocations.
- National finals in Lyons in January 2022
Phase 2 of the French finals took place from 12 to 15 January, 2022, in Lyons. As Skill Partner for three skills in the construction category, Vicat supplied a range of products, such as concrete, masonry cement, sand, gravel, etc., for use by competitors in:
- Reinforced-concrete construction
- External works (roads, utilities, etc.)
The national finals are the run-up to European and global adventures, for the worldwide WorldSkills Shanghai competition will take place at the end of 2022, followed by the EuroSkills competition in Saint Petersburg in 2023.
