NEC Skills Show
The Skills Show is held every year and is the nation’s largest skills and careers event helping to shape the future of a new generation, by helping young people to go further, faster in their careers. On the 16th November we took 50 excited students in Year 10 and Year 11 to the show to experience over 200 national and local employers and training organisations engaging with young people, parents and educators. The students were able to experience hundreds of great career ideas to explore, including jobs of the future. Independent careers advisers and other experts were also on hand to give up to date impartial 1:1 advice and guidance on all routes into jobs from live job vacancies, apprenticeships and training opportunities. Students were able to seek out their preferred career stalls and asked the right questions about the qualifications needed and pathways into it so they had a much clearer vision of their future.
