WorldSkills launches the Kazan Declaration

During the 45th WorldSkills Competition in Kazan, WorldSkills presented the Kazan Declaration, which was signed by experts and delegates. The declaration is a global pledge to enable all people to receive the necessary skills – cognitive, social, cultural, green, and digital – to secure a promising and sustainable professional future.

This is a huge milestone, as the declaration centres on 5 human-centric principles that, based on Mission: Talent research, we believe falls very much in line with where the focus needs to be if we are to close the skills gap.

The five principles are:
1. Future Skills for Everyone – the democratisation of skills.
2. Self-Conscious Development – self-awareness and taking responsibility for one’s professional growth.
3. Transparent and Fair Opportunities – labour market transparency and equal opportunities.
4. Skills Mobility – skills transferability and flexible/remote employment
5. Application of Values and Respect for the Individual – fair working conditions regardless of origin, gender, ethnicity, or preferences and opportunities for employees’ professional and personal growth.

Follow us on twitter, Facebook and Linkedin to find out more about these principles and what it means to follow a human-centric approach when it comes to skills.
