There are lots of different courses of varying duration covering graphic design. These include the upper-secondary aesthetics or engineering programmes, vocational colleges, university colleges/universities and independent communication schools.

Visual Merchandising/Window Dressing

What happens here?
Competitors will be working with two window display tasks which have to be completed over three days. In the first category, “lifestyle”, the participants will receive a brief with a theme and product placements already defined. The second task involves a fashion window which allows the participants to be more creative and come up with innovative solutions using the materials and theme provided. All the prerequisites and instructions will be shared with the participants on the first day of the competition.

Who’s the winner?
While carrying out the tasks, the competitors must demonstrate several different professional skills, including measuring and assembly, research, design and communication, preparation and working with props. Points are awarded for all elements in accordance with the judges’ instructions, and are added up as per a table to determine the winner.

Working as a visual merchandiser/window dresser
Visual merchandisers are often referred to as window dressers. As a visual merchandiser, you will primarily be working in stores. Your task is to reinforce and illustrate concepts, brands and ranges by building milieus and displaying products in a way that makes them attractive to buyers. The purpose of the job is to find new sales opportunities by improving how products are presented in stores. The work of a visual merchandiser focuses on customers and sales.

How to become a visual merchandiser
The upper-secondary commerce programme provides a good basis, but there is no vocational programme which directly focuses on window dressing. You can continue your training at Medborgarskolan, Folkuniversitetet or Folk High School. Employers may expect visual merchandisers to hold a driving license and have access to a car.

Social and personal service

How to become a hairdresser
Hairdressers must be familiar with and master many different cutting, chemical treatment and haircare techniques and methods. But great social skills and service-mindedness are at least as important to a good hairdresser. The profession suits a creative person who is interested in fashion.

Working as a hairdresser
To work as a qualified hairdresser requires basic and continuing training which ends with a trade test. The continuing training involves practical work experience for 1.5 to 2 years. There are three routes into the work: upper-secondary school, private training and trainee placements.

Health and Social Care

What happens here?
The competitors are presented with nine different scenarios which involve a number of different challenges and require them to handle complex situations typically faced by assistant nurses. The scenarios are set in the home, in a hospital or in a nursing home. Each challenge gives the competitors 45 minutes to determine a diagnosis and carry out treatment using evidence-based methods. At the same time, the individual’s resources must be improved, social dilemmas managed and the necessary information communicated to users and relatives. Actors take part to make the scenarios as realistic as possible.

Who’s the winner?
During the challenges, the competitors’ planning ability, communication, care and approach will be assessed. Other important aspects include ergonomics, safety and hygiene. The competitors may not watch the other participants until they themselves have competed.

Transport and logistics

Agricultural Mechanic

What happens here?

The competition involves a number of practical challenges. The competitors must identify faults in gearboxes, engines and electronic and hydraulic components, and fix them. The tasks will remain largely secret until the start of the competition, and the challenge is to deal with the problems as soon as they occur. The competitors may also have to explain how certain components work.

Who’s the winner?

The competitors solve the problems individually, and are assessed on how they prepare themselves and carry out the work, the dismantling method used, accuracy in taking measurements and fault-finding, as well as, of course, the remedial actions taken and reassembly.

Working as an agricultural mechanic

The work of an agricultural mechanic involves repairing, servicing and maintaining agricultural machinery. This includes both small and large machinery, from combine harvesters to manure spreaders. A mechanic may work on a farm or in a workshop specialising in a certain type of machine.

How to become an agricultural mechanic

Agricultural mechanics is a specialist subject. The basic training is the same as for car and motorcycle mechanics, which forms part of the upper-secondary vehicle programme, with a focus on car technology or machinery and truck technology. Training is also available at independent schools.

1) Mechanical check of the engine and driveline

2) Checking the steering and wheel assembly

3) Checking the brake system

4) Fault-finding in the engine’s fuel and exhaust systems

5) Fault-finding in the chassis electrical system 

The precise tasks and the particular parts the competitors will be working on will be revealed at the start of the competition.

Who’s the Winner?
Throughout all elements, the judges will be looking at how the competitors prepare themselves, use tools, carry out measurements and fault-finding, and the actions taken during reassembly. The work carried out is tested and checked, and every element is worth one-fifth of the available points. These are then added up to find the overall winner.

Working as a heavy truck mechanic
Truck and machine mechanics work with heavy vehicles. They often work in workshops, using computer support and equipment designed for heavy lifting. Another aspect of the work is carrying out modifications, i.e. customising heavy trucks. Some heavy truck mechanics and most machine mechanics work as in-field mechanics. All machines must be serviced regularly, and to save time and keep costs down, most of these are serviced where they are used.

How to become a heavy truck mechanic
The way into the trade is via the vehicle and transport programme. Professional heavy truck and machine mechanics receive ongoing training within the sector. There is a constant demand for heavy truck mechanics, and relatively few people train for the job.

Presentation skills

3D Computer Design

What happens here?
Find out more about the role of the 3D artist in the development of game aesthetics and colour, as well as the shapes and movement of characters and environments.

Working as a 3D Games developer
There are many professions involved in game development, e.g. designers, artists and programmers. It is a creative job where you work as part of a larger team to develop a game. Here at EuroSkills 2016, we are focusing on the role of the 3D artist. The artist works, for example, with 3D software to create the most realistic experience possible for the user. The artist is also responsible for quality, implements technical improvements and corrects bugs discovered when the game is tested.

There is significant demand for people with knowledge of game development, so there is an excellent chance of finding work after completing the course.

Aquatronics

What happens here?
The water treatment engineers simulate the everyday challenges they face. The many competences and skills used in treating waste water are displayed.

Working as a water treatment engineer
Aquatronics is a description of the areas of expertise needed in the water and waste water treatment sector. Interdisciplinary competence, e.g. mechanics, electronics, chemistry, biology, the environment and automation, are required to ensure that small and medium-sized treatment plants are run efficiently and cost-effectively. A growing population means increased water consumption, which leads to greater quantities of waste water that need to be treated. Consequently, water purification is becoming an increasingly important subject. It is important that maintenance and operating personnel continue to improve their knowledge and skills to allow them to handle changes.

How to become a water treatment engineer
Training for water treatment engineers is offered both at upper-secondary level and by a number of vocational colleges. At upper-secondary level, the training forms part of the electricity and energy programme, which is not offered by all schools.

It is highly likely that anyone completing the training will find a job. Clean water is in short supply, and in our part of the world, one example of a growing problem is that current water treatment plants do not remove medical drugs etc. from the water supply.

Maritime Skills

What happens here?
The trade stand will feature a marine engine from Volvo Penta, as well as various safety products, such as a survival suit.

Working in the shipping industry
The maritime skills course prepares students for immediate work aboard ships, or to apply for officer training. Students will first practice the practical elements in the school’s ship’s lab, and subsequently aboard our training vessels. During the course, students will undergo Workplace Training (APL), which will give them practical work experience and the opportunity to establish contacts. The Workplace Training will primarily take place aboard the Stena Line’s ships. During the first year, students can choose between training focusing on deck work or machinery-related work:

Deck work

On deck, students will be involved in loading and unloading operations, and take part in the operation and maintenance of the vessel.

Machinery-related

Students who choose this course will be working with the operation and maintenance of the ship’s machinery and other technical equipment.

How to train for the shipping industry
Maritime skills courses are offered at upper-secondary and college level. Training at upper-secondary level leads to a career as seaman or motorman, which is a 3-year course. The university college course qualifies the student for a career leading potentially to the command of a ship or as a marine engineer. The course lasts four years, one of which is spent gaining work experience aboard a ship.

Professional Driver

What happens here?
Have a go at driving a lorry in an advanced simulator.

Working as a professional driver
Professional Drivers make up the majority of people working in the transport industry, and they always have to be prepared to adapt to different work methods and new assignments. You can choose whether you want to work in Sweden only, or drive longer distances all across Europe. Today, haulage contractors are expecting more of their employees, and qualified personnel are highly valued.

How to become a professional driver
Training for professional drivers is offered at upper-secondary level, and students can choose courses focusing on different aspects of the job. Truck drivers are not the only ones in demand in the jobs market. Anyone completing a course focusing on transport is virtually guaranteed a job.

Concrete Construction

What happens here?
Competitors will be given a drawing of a concrete structure. Their task is to build a mould which will then be filled with concrete. It is important that the competitors consider whether the mould will be strong enough and that the structure matches the drawing.

Working with Concrete
Concrete workers build moulds, reinforce and pour various construction elements, including floors, slabs, beams, walls and pillars. They may work on constructing buildings, or on roads and bridges. Today, it is more and more common for concrete elements to be prefabricated and delivered straight from the factory to the construction site. In this event, the concrete workers assemble the elements on site. A good concrete worker will have an excellent understanding of construction engineering, how to read drawings, measuring techniques, construction and how to work in a way which ensures that the end result maintains a high level of quality. As a concrete worker, you will primarily be working as part of a team. This means that professionalism and social skills are high on the agenda.

How to become a concrete worker
Training as a concrete worker is offered at upper-secondary level, via the building and construction programme, with the emphasis on building construction. After training at upper-secondary level, students will serve an apprenticeship lasting around 2.5 years with a company. During the apprenticeship, you will receive an apprentice salary from the company. Once the apprenticeship is completed and you have met all the targets for the job, you will receive your trade certificate.

Entrepreneurship

What happens here?
Teams of 2 are given specific scenarios which they must resolve. Every scenario is timed and includes elements of the unexpected. The challenges take place in public and are computer-based.

Working as an entrepreneur
Entrepreneurship is all about creating and developing a business idea, drawing up a concrete business plan and explaining and presenting a strategy for attracting customers. Being an entrepreneur means having the ability to see new opportunities in traditionally-established operations. It may also involve seeing the potential of a completely new product or service. Being an entrepreneur means driving progress forward. Entrepreneurship frequently results in a successful business enterprise.

How to become an entrepreneur
Entrepreneurship is taught at upper-secondary level. The Ung Företagsamhet (Young Entrepreneurship) programme is a successful example of this. Entrepreneurship is also taught and supported at university college level. Other examples include incubators, new business centres etc.

Interior Design

What happens here?
This is a practical challenge which involves one person creating a multifunctional space divider. Function and design will be considered, and the competitor must attempt to meet the client’s expectations.

Working as an interior designer
Interior design is the art and science of improving interiors. Sometimes, it also involves outdoor environments, such as a building, where the aim is to achieve a healthier and more aesthetically-pleasing environment. An interior designer plans, coordinates and manages such projects.

An interior designer is either self-employed, or works as part of a team for a design or advertising agency which develops visual identities for businesses or private clients.

How to become an interior designer
Basic training is offered under the upper-secondary aesthetics programme. Prospective interior designers may also benefit from the handicrafts programme, focusing on textile design, or the building and construction programme, concentrating on painting and decorating. After finishing upper-secondary school, you can continue to study, for example, at the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design (Konstfack), at folk high schools or private schools in Sweden or abroad. The higher vocational education programme may also offer relevant courses.

Training for interior architects is offered at university college level, and may last between four to twelve years, but the basic training mostly lasts eight years.

Pitched Roofing

What happens here?
The stand will feature a test roof where two different techniques have been used: a curved metal roof and a saddle roof made from natural slate. Visitors will also have the opportunity to try the different techniques.

Working as a roofer
Roofing is a diversified job which covers many different areas of expertise, such as saddle roofs, sheet metal roofs, flat roofs, insulation, outer walls, frameworks etc. Roofers also work with many different types of material which call for different technical knowledge. The focus must always be on safety, since working at significant heights carries a significant amount of risk.

How to become a roofer
Training for roofers is offered at upper-secondary and college level. Specific courses are then offered for thatchers at selected schools. The training lasts around five years in total, but you can then continue to improve your skills to a more advanced level, and learn more techniques.

There is a shortage of roofers, especially thatchers, so there is a good chance of finding work after completing the training.

Retail Sales

What happens here?
Participants are tested in various in-store scenarios. The participants are assessed by a team of judges during role-plays based on actual in-store scenarios developed by experienced store sellers. The assessment looks at the skills regarded as important in the industry, and which are needed to make a professional seller.

Working as a store seller
A store seller works in-store, selling goods straight to customers. You must master both sales techniques and psychology, and also be able to provide personal service with a focus on the customer. Trends in the industry require an increasing understanding of ethical, social and ecological sustainability, and the ability to interact with digital development. The work requires good product knowledge and an understanding of how they are used. Person-to-person skills are also extremely important.

How to become a store seller
There are many ways in which to become a store seller. There is a 3-year upper secondary course called the retail and administration programme, focusing on retail and services. Most store sellers do, however, come from other upper-secondary programmes. There is also a strong emphasis on in-house training courses within the sector, primarily offered by the larger companies.

Around 50,000 store sellers are hired every year. There is a high level of staff turnover, so the chances of getting a job are good.
