WorldSkills Kazan 2019 - First team weekend of SwissSkills Team
The SwissSkills team for the WorldSkills Professional Championships, which take place from 22 to 27 August 2019 in the Russian Kazan, met from the 1 to 3 February in Davos for the first team weekend.
The Swiss team competes in 40 different professions and consists of 42 participants, around 40 experts and other mentors and officials. The focus of the three days was on getting to know each other and the exchange between the candidates and experts. This took place in the form of joint group games, challenges and discussions as well as the elaboration of the future team slogan.
Also on the agenda were photo sessions, fitting of the official delegation clothing and a medical and mental check-up. Our employee and former apprentice Thomas Schranz will compete for Switzerland in the category Polymechanics/Automation. In this professional category, the 20-year-old won first place last September at the Swiss Championships SwissSkills 2018 in Bern.
