The Skilleroos taking off from Sydney to London for the International Worldskills competition limbering up with a tug of war of 5 pairs of Mascot pants tied together!
The Australian Worldskills team, "the Skilleroos" represented Australia at the 41st International Worldskills competition in London from the 5th to the 8th October. The team regularly punches above its weight and won Gold, Silver and Bronze medals in a very strong competition.
Proskill and Mascot Workwear fitted out the Australian Worldskills team, "the Skilleroos" in some of the best and coolest workwear in the world – Mascot Workwear.
"We've worn the Proskill workwear representing Australia many times now and I have to say with their new Mascot workwear range they have just lifted the bar even higher!" said Mark Callaghan - CEO Worldskills Australia
"It makes me proud to see the team looking so professional and I have no doubt that, while looking good, the workwear will also help them to perform their best and hopefully give them the edge over their competitors." continued Mark

"The most comfortable gear I've ever worn!"
Proskill and Worldskills have worked together for years on how to not only look professional but to also get the best performance out of 'working wear' not just clothes!
"I timed my competitor both without the Proskill Tool Vest and with the Proskill Tool Vest and I've estimated she's saved 3 to 4 hours over a three day competition period. This is priceless!" said Ian Vickery - Australian Worldskills expert and trainer.
Proskill's Chris Doolan said "Our company's main goal is to improve the respect and quality of life of professional tradesman and workers. To see Australia's best young Apprentices be the very best they can be is what we're here for!"
Proskill proudly sponsors Worldskills and the Australian Worldskills team, "the Skilleroos!"
Worldskills is a terrifically inspiring organization through which many volunteers, particularly TAFE Teachers and employers build up and give their apprentices the opportunity to be the best Tradesman and people they can be. Potentially even representing Australia in their chosen trade!
With a bit of luck, determination and a lot of hard work these apprentices could represent Australia in their trade at the International Worldskills competition, this year in London in October.
“At the Worldskills International Competition it is often the little things that make a difference between success and failure. Having the Skilleroos outfitted in the Proskill gear meant that they were able to compete more efficiently and effectively while at the same time looking professional”. – Mark Callaghan, CEO Worldskills Australia.
Above is a photo of the Australian Worldskills team in their Proskill uniforms on their way to the International Worldskills competition in Calgary in 2009. The International Worldskills and National Worldskills competition are on alternative years. In 2009 the Skilleroos came 5th in the World and we had many World champs, Silver & Bronze medalists competing against the best in the World!
