The UK's biggest skills and careers event, The Skills Show is a unique annual celebration that will inspire the fashion designers, web developers and engineers of tomorrow with exciting opportunities in further education, skills and Apprenticeships. There is lots going on at the show and plenty for visitors to get involved with such as visiting the interactive 'Have a Go's' section, offering visitors the chance to try a 'bite-size' taster of a new skill, trade or profession. They will also be able to speak to colleges, universities and learning providers from across the UK, about the different entry routes into a host of career sectors; and all this for free!
In addition to offering loads of advice, The Skills Show will also be the centrepiece and culmination of a nationwide campaign to raise the public awareness and recognition of vocational skills and careers by hosting a range of skills competitions, awards and activities. Building on the saying that 'seeing is believing', visitors are set to be inspired by a wide variety of skills in action, as the best of the nation's young talent perform at the WorldSkills UK Competitions.
