. The competition took place from 22 to 26 September 2021 in Graz, Austria.
Three young people competed in turning and seven in milling. All ten participants each received a tool voucher for 2,500 euros at the end of the competition and the winners in both disciplines were participants from Russia.
Christian Thiele, press spokesman at Paul Horn said: “All participants did a great job and can take home an unforgettable life experience. We at Horn are proud to have been a part of this success.”EuroSkills
is a vocational European competition that is usually held every two years, although due to Covid-19 it was postponed from 2020 to 2021. The focus is on young, highly talented professionals aged up to 25 years (26 years for EuroSkills 2021
) who achieve excellence in approximately 45 vocations. The competitions in occupational fields from industry, trades and services were contested by around 400 participants.
For the first time since EuroSkills
was founded, this European Championship took place in Austria, in the capital city of the southern province of Styria. The event was an opportunity to make vocational training more attractive long-term and to counteract the shortage of skilled workers by highlighting different career opportunities.
The overall goal was to entrench the idea of vocational skills in the hearts of as many people as possible so that it endures into the future.
