The Skills Show is the nation’s largest skills apprenticeships and careers event. It is divided into zones so Saint Martin’s Year 10 students started the day planning their route.
Each zone provides a focus on particular industry sectors including:
- Hospitality and Lifestyle
- Construction and Infrastructure
- Engineering and Technology
- IT and Enterprise
- Media and Creative
The event provides the opportunity for young people to talk to experts to learn about different jobs and the route to an ideal career. There were plenty of hands-on activities and much to see with a range of potential career interests on offer. Students were able to talk to an apprentice from a local training provider (MTC) and learn about his application process.
