In this week's episode of the Tes FE podcast, deputy FE editor Julia Belgutay speaks with Tes columnist and podcast host Sarah Simons about how skills competitions are changing the face of technical education the world over.

Team UK has achieved considerable success in global skills contests, but competitors here receive much less support than their foreign rivals.

Could investing in competitions such as WorldSkills be the key to supercharging technical education? And should we be embedding this approach throughout FE and apprenticeships? Also, as Russia has rebuilt its technical education system around WorldSkills standards with great success, could the UK follow suit?
