  • BRANDGUIDELINES2018

  • These guidelines give details of the visual elements of the WorldSkills UK identity such as our logo, colour palette, graphic elements and typefaces. The use of these elements will inform the look and feel of our communications.

    We are an accelerator for young people in the start-upphase of their careers. This means we inspire more young people to take up apprenticeships and technical education; we champion their success; and we accelerate their personal and professional development. Helping them to GO FURTHER, FASTER.

    Our visual identity is a reflection of the drive and energy of the young people we champion and of the WorldSkills UK organisation.

    Department for Education This is our supporter logo which must feature on all external WorldSkills UK corporate communications.

    Principals: The Department for Education

    logo should only be used on WSUK communications where space permits, or where it can be given enough distance to sit away from the WSUK logo so as not to cause confusion from whom the communication is coming from. (Examples of where the Department for Education logo can not be applied due to space restrictions are small web banners and business cards.)

    The logo must always be reproduced from master logo artwork.

    Exclusion zone The logo will stand out more and have greater impact when it is surrounded by enough clear space. An exclusion zone has been created to make sure of this. It is determined by the width of the crest.

    The Department for Education logo should appear at half the size of the WorldSkills UK logo.

    For single sided printed communications the WSUK and DfE logos should appear together. In this instance, the logos are shown in their primary positions, however, where needed the WSUK logo can be positioned in either the top right or left hand corners, and the supporter logo can be placed in either the bottom left or right hand corners.

    When producing communications that are more than a single page (eg brochures, reports, folders, PPT presentations), the DfE logo should be placed on the last page or back cover and positioned in the bottom left corner.

    The measurements shown here are for A4 portrait (210mm (w) x 297mm (h)). For other formats, please scale up or down accordingly and follow these principles.

  • Logos Partner logos

    WorldSkills UK will often partner with an organisation on a project. In these instances we need to show the WorldSkills UK logo in conjunction with the partner logo.

    The right approach will depend upon the target audience for the communications and the make up of the partnership.

    The size relationship between the two logos will depend on the funding provided by the partner.

    When a project is fully-funded by a partner, the two logos should be equal in size.

    When a project is part-funded (less than 100%) by a partner, the partner logo should appear at 75% of the size of the WSUK logo.

  • Core elementsColour palette

    The WorldSkills UK colour palette is used for all of the parent brand, activity materials and graphic assets.

    Always reproduce the colours using the specifications shown here. Do not add your own colours to the palette. When applying type over the colours always ensure there is enough contrast between the text colour and the background colour to ensure legibility.

    Use of coloursUse these vertical colour groups when producing materials to avoid clashes of colour on single pages and spreads. A maximim of 2 colour groups should be used per spread.

    Across multi-page documents it is important to use a mix of colour groups throughout the document, and be mindful not to use too much of one colour.

  • Visual assets

    Photography focussing on young people experiencing skills should always be the main method of engagement with an audience.

    Use the dynamic strips, colours and typography to create a unique visual style.

    Helping young people go further, faster in their careers.

    WorldSkills UK 2018Brand guidelines v.1

    4.1

  • Visual assetsPhotography Principles

    Only WorldSkills UK photographs should be used for imagery.

    Images should demonstrate: Engagement in an activity. A range of skills. Diversity. An activity or skill focus that

    is clear to interpret. A focus on people.

    Avoid: Obvious clichs and stereotypes. Overly posed scenarios. Static feeling scenarios. No clear sense of focus. Adding effects such as soft focus

    or over-exposure. Showing negative situations.

    Skills focused photography The imagery should be tightly cropped, with the focus being on the skill or the individuals.

    Competition photography Photography from past competitions can be used to build excitement and anticipation. Careful consideration should also be made when choosing and cropping your images.

    Spectator photography Photography featuring spectators at WorldSkills UK competitions and events can be used to show the scale of the event and engagement with young people.

    WorldSkills UK 2018Brand guidelines v.1

    4.2

  • Visual assetsSelecting and cropping photographs

    Bear in mind the following when selecting and cropping photographs:

    SkillsSkills and the themes of competition and celebration are at the core of WorldSkills UK and the photographs should support this.

    Audience The attendees are primarily young peoplebut the audience can be quite diverse and could include parents, teachers, careers advisers, sponsors, partners and policy makers.

    EngagingIf the subjects are engaged in a skills activity the photograph is more likely to be more engaging. Try to select and crop photographs that put faces close to the action / skill. Avoid large, empty areas between eyes and hands. Look for photographs which tell a story, or an emotion.

    FocussedDont just check for focus (sharpness), check for focus (one central point of interest). Avoid noisy backgrounds, look for backgrounds that are out of focus, or contain event branded graphic panels.

    Interaction between demonstrator and visitor. Crowd in the background.

    Demonstrator and visitor focussed on learning.

    Team, representation, success.

    Audience: In this case, for parents as well.

    Some examples

    WorldSkills UK 2018Brand guidelines v.1

    4.3

  • Visual assetsDynamic strips

    The visual identity draws upon to concept of going forward utilising dynamic, coloured strips as the core graphic language. The strips can only be used in the WorldSkills UK core brand colour palette (see page 3.1).

    Note: Photography focussing on young people experiencing skills should always be the main method of engagement with an audience not the strips.

    For ALL collateral, strips should be used as a supporting device, rather than as the lead.

    Note: Never more than 2 or 3 strips per page (or spread). Always bleed the edges of the strips off the page except for one end which can sometimes be left visible. K

    The strips have a sliced edge that matches the angle of the WorldSkills UK headline typeface, Prometo Black Italic

  • The dynamic strips can be used in a number of ways to add excitement and energy to our communications and layouts.

    Illustrated here are just a few ways in which the strips can be used.

    RE WIND

    In the past year, WorldSkills UK has more fi rmly established itself as a vital contributor to the UKs skills and education agenda, delivering to young people, business and governments.

    We have raised technical and employability skills standards through skills competitions, achieving our best ever result at European level, and inspired tens of thousands of young people to fi nd and achieve their ambitions through our careers advice and experiences, including at the unique Skills Show. Like many organisations in the skills sector, we are achieving our goals during a period of economic and political change and we couldnt do this without the immense expertise and support of a huge network of businesses, colleges, training providers, individual experts and skills organisations. We look forward to working together on the next steps of our journey accelerating the careers and lives of more and more young people.

    Chair of WorldSkills UKCarole Stott

    2016 17 has been a highly successful year for our work. Working with the skills sector, we have helped over 100,000 young people to raise standards and prepare for skilled careers and hundreds of businesses to improve their talent development.

    We have confi rmed our reputation for delivering high quality and strong outcomes and have done so with more effi ciency and improved value for money than in previous years, delivering greater benefi ts to young people, business and governments. We have driven signifi cant change through repositioning ourselves, with a greater focus on developing commercial partnerships, investing in new product development and putting young people more at the heart of our work. We are well set for future growth and development, for providing even more value for partners and funders, increasing our diversity and achieving even greater impact for young people, employers and the skills sector in the years ahead.

    ResourcesWe are maintaining the highest quality of delivery, whilst moving to a resource portfolio with less reliance on a core public funding grant and a greater focus on commercial income.

    We delivered against a public grant that reduced by 13% between 201516 and 201617.

    We spent 96p in every 1 of core grant funding on delivery of charitable objectives and made 2.1m in effi ciency savings.

    We leveraged additional funds, both public, including from ESFD and CEC, and commercial, including a variety of new private sector funders.

    Our focus on commercial investments resulted in 1.35m of direct sponsorship income in the year.

    We secured 4.4m1 of value in kind from commercial partners in resources, materials, high-tech equipment and time to support the national skills competitions cycle.

    Signifi cant further fi nancial and resource contributions towards competition activity were made at local level across the UK by colleges and employers and by governments through projects in N Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

    Our volunteering programmes, expressed as a value from the hours worked, exceed 100k pa.

    Can you think of another way in which you can potentially contact thousands of young people and inspire them to come and work for you? I dont think you can. Its absolutely thrilling.HS2.

    WorldSkills UK is all about improving the prestige of apprenticeships and technical education, to inspire more young people to consider these as career routes and get off to a better start in work and life. But it takes more than words to achieve this; its what we do that works.

    We help young people set off in the right direction through experiential careers advice activities and access to guidance from peer role models. We engage thousands of young people in skills competitions right across the UK, where they improve their technical and employability skills to the highest possible national standard. Then we select the best in the UK and put them into an accelerated development programme to compete with the best in the rest of the world. We create medal winning, world-class skills champions: young, confident role models, from all backgrounds, who go on to inspire others to follow in their footsteps.

    Our experience means we have the know-how to fast track the development of the skill set and mindset in young people that employers want and the economy needs. We can do this because we are a partnership between Governments, business and education. We collaborate to develop our home-grown skills, improve social mobility and drive up training standards to the highest level to help boost UK productivity and competitiveness.

    Ultimately we champion young people because they carry our future on their shoulders. Join us in helping more young people go further, faster in work and life.

    Increasing the STEM Pipeline Alignment with WorldSkills UK broadens our inclusion agenda to encourage young people from under-represented backgrounds to consider a career in STEM... Martin Brown, Product Manager

    Siemens is a leading global engineering and technology services company, active in the United Kingdom for over 170 years. They provide innovative solutions to help tackle the UKs major challenges and employ around 14,000 people in the UK, including about 5,000 in the manufacturing sector.

    Siemens and WorldSkills UK share a desire to continuously improve the quality of technical training for young people, so they become competent young professionals. To achieve this goal, Siemens has supported the WorldSkills UK Competition in Industrial Control since 2011. As an innovative, globally-active technology company, Siemens wants to inspire people to have an interest in technology, and improve the quality of technical training.

    KEY POINTS

    WorldSkills UK can act as a vehicle in helping to improve a companys approach to inclusion by broadening its reach to the talent pipeline coming through.

    Partnering with WorldSkills UK produces business to business collaboration on technical skills and training development.

    The relationship with WorldSkills UK Competitions also leads to improved brand recognition and aligning the Siemens brand with the excellence and quality associated with Competitions.

    A focused approach

    The main driver for Siemens in working with WorldSkills UK on the Industrial Control Competition is to demonstrate the quality of their products, associating their brand with excellence and the quality of work that is found in WorldSkills UK Competitions. It also offers the organisation business to business opportunities, as the partners they engage with develop greater awareness through exposure from the National Finals. Finally, WorldSkills UK Competitions provide the opportunity to act as a route into the organisations apprenticeship and education programmes.

    Siemens:

    5

    Throughout the competition cycle they undertook a rigorous training regime, which developed their skills in communication, team-work, leadership, problem solving, time management and planning. Martin Brown highlighted:

    Creating new business networks

    Siemens provide value-in-kind equipment for the Industrial Control Competition, which enables competitors to become familiar with the software and equipment which, in the long term helps to support the use of Siemens equipment.
