PPG to support WorldSkills Europe vocational skills organisation for 2024-25

12 June 2024

PPG will support the WorldSkills Europe (WSE) vocational skills organisation for 2024-25 as a Premium Sponsor. WSE promotes vocational, technological and service-oriented education and training across Europe, working with young people, educators, governments and industries to prepare the workforce and talent for the jobs of the future.

WSE organises EuroSkills, the largest vocational education and skills excellence event in Europe, bringing together hundreds of young people from 33 countries to compete in various skills and professions including painting and decorating.

“Collaborations with global industry-leading companies like PPG are invaluable in helping WorldSkills Europe prepare young people for their future careers,” said Guillaume Suteau, Board Chair of WorldSkills Europe. “PPG recognises the critical role that skills play in building industries and supporting creativity and innovation. We look forward to benefiting from PPG’s expertise and impressive capabilities throughout this partnership.”

“Our partnership with WorldSkills Europe reflects PPG’s dedication to shaping the future of our industry,” said Pascal Tisseyre, PPG Vice President, government affairs, Europe, Middle East, and Africa. “Partnering with WorldSkills Europe aligns with our mission to address the lack of skilled workforce, encourage youth participation and foster talent development.”

PPG has been a longstanding WorldSkills supporter. Earlier this year, the company announced its support for WorldSkills Lyon 2024, where it will provide financial support and supply products and expertise for the painting and decorating skill category, including SEIGNEURIE® paints by PPG.

The partnership is also part of PPG’s commitment to support education and workforce development initiatives that prepare students for careers in the skilled trades. In 2023, PPG and the PPG Foundation announced a US$2 million investment to support programs that provide training, curriculum development and career readiness resources for students and educators.
