The Skills Development Agency is organising the BRICS Future Skills Challenge 2022

BRICS Future Skills Challenge participants compete in 70 skills in several stages, lasting from March to December 2022. There are over 20 thousand participants joining the challenges at sites distributed across the BRICS members and guest nations, such as Ghana, Myanmar, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, the Republic of Belarus, Zimbabwe, Kyrgyzstan, Iran, Malaysia, Uzbekistan and Mongolia. The BRICS Future Skills Challenge 2022 programme includes training sessions at international skills camps, global competitions, supplementary vocational training, and Auditorium sections, aimed at sharing best practices.

BRICS Future Skills Challenge 2022 is Russia's and China's first joint experience in co-hosting the competition, with each country providing its own distributed venues. This has resulted in a mechanism of holding an international championship in multiple host countries, in addition to motivating more nations to participate.

"Thanks to the new BRICS Skills Challenge format, each of our countries has been able to co-host a major international event. This competition has turned into a significant milestone, continuing to chart the path of our cooperation. By putting together internationally distributed venues, the host countries can learn, absorb and pass on new experience, and invite new partners," notes Ms Alina Doskanova, Deputy Director General for International Relations at the Skills Development Agency.

During the now completed stage of the competition, the Skills Development Agency oversaw skills camps and skills challenges in 7 skills: Digital Electric Drive (this was the skill's début at the international competition, supported by Vector Group LLC), Graphic Design Technology, Mechanical Engineering CAD, Information Security (supported by Rosatom Group), Plastic Die Engineering (supported by Sprut-Tekhnologiya LLC and All-Russian Research Institute "Signal"), Enterprise Information Systems Security (supported by Infowatch, Infotecs, HSE, Belgorod Region Advanced Vocational Training Centre, and Belgorod Industrial College), Robot Systems Integration (supported by Trizrobotics), Life Cycle Management (supported by Rostech Group), and Video Games and Multimedia Applications Development (supported by Moscow Tsaritsyno College of Management, Hospitality Business and Information Technology).

Over 100 competitors, experts, and observers from Ghana, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, the Republic of Belarus, the People's Republic of China, Zimbabwe, India, Kyrgyzstan, Iran, the Republic of South Africa, Malaysia and Uzbekistan took part in the training process and in the competitions themselves.

In addition, Russia sent its representatives to the event stage hosted by China. Russian competitors showcased their professionalism in 25 skills, while Russian experts helped assess the performance of international teams. At the end of the competition, Russian competitors won 7 gold, 17 silver, and 17 bronze medals, as well as 27 medals for professionalism.
