YOUNG people are set to benefit from the best of the country’s business expertise, with the news that the UK’s largest vocational skills and careers event will be held in the Midlands in mid-November – just a month away.
The Skills Show, to be held at the NEC from November 15-17, is a unique annual celebration of skills and learning which aims to inspire a new generation to enter further education, training and apprenticeships.
The event, which highlights the vital importance of skills to the UK’s economy and its future growth, will be based in the Midlands for the next three years – a decision which reflects the importance of the area nationwide.
“The Skills Show will be an unrivalled skills experience to inspire the future stars of tomorrow,” explains Ross Maloney, the event’s CEO.
“We want thousands of young people, their parents, guardians, educators and employers to visit The Skills Show and be inspired by the highly skilled apprentices and young people in action, as well as trying new skills for themselves and receiving the latest career advice to help them make informed choices about the future.”
The Skills Show will be held at the NEC Birmingham from 15-17 November and admission is free. For more information about the event, and the programme of special activities taking place, please visit www.theskillsshow.com.
