Dean Tilden will train Kye Beisler to represent baking at the WorldSkills Competition in Russia next year.
An internationally recognised line-up of experts will spend the next eight months working with Australia’s top trainees and apprentices as they prepare for the world’s largest skills competition. WorldSkills Kazan 2019, scheduled for August next year, brings together competitors from over 70 countries to compete in over 50 skills, such as bricklaying, car painting, digital game art and baking.
TAFE NSW teacher Dean Tilden has been selected as baking training manager. He will mentor bakery competitor Kye Beisler in the lead-up to the competition.
WorldSkills Australia CEO Brett Judd says, “Australia currently holds 10th place on the WorldSkills international rankings and our aim for the 2019 competition is to place in the top five.
“To help us achieve this ambitious goal, and to ensure we head to Russia with the best chance of success, we’ve matched the country’s top training managers with the country’s best young apprentices and trainees.
“WorldSkills Australia is fortunate to have a group of extremely talented training managers, many of whom have been recognised for their work in their chosen skill areas.”
WorldSkills Kazan 2019 will take place from 22 to 27 August, 2019.
