The steel industry is committed to offering employees the opportunity to further their education and develop their skills.

Not only is this a way of enhancing the quality of work and productivity but it also boosts employee satisfaction.

worldsteel provides three types of services to enhance training skills amongst the steel industry workforce:



steeluniversity is the learning and training programme of worldsteel. The programme delivers education and training to current and future employees of steel companies and related businesses.

Learning is delivered online at and in person, sharing knowledge on steel manufacturing, metallurgy, steel applications, environment, safety, and steel business.

Every year, steeluniversity organises a steelChallenge, which is a competition open to all, with two main categories, industry and students.

steelChallenge is the biggest steel industry competition where students and industry employees can test their skills using the sophisticated online process simulations delivered by steeluniversity.

Registration is open for steelChallenge-15 on the website. The Regional Championship will take place online on 25 November 2020. Click here to register.
