Come and Have a Go… if you think you’re skilled enough!
The Skills Show is calling upon businesses to give young people a chance to try their hand at a new skill.
- The Skills Show is the UK’s largest skills and careers event, held 14-16 November at the NEC, Birmingham
- A not for profit initiative that helps change the way we think about skills, training and apprenticeships, the event provides 75,000 visitors with a bite size taster of different skills and careers through its popular Have a Go activities
- With 80% of young people surveyed at The Skills Show saying Have a Go activities were the most helpful in improving their understanding of vocational education, The Skills Show is now inviting businesses to help run Have a Go experiences at this year’s event and inspire the talent of tomorrow
The Skills Show’s 2012 Skills Patron, Theo Paphitis, explains why the Have a Go sessions are so important:
Having a go for yourself is the best way of getting a taste for a new skill. There’s no substitute for hands-on experience to help open the minds of thousands of young people to the jobs and careers that are out there waiting for them.
Andy Knight, Commercial Development Manager at The Skills Show, said:
The Skills Show provides fantastic opportunities for businesses looking to demonstrate their commitment to skills and inspire the next generation. We’re keen to hear from a wide range of professions who can give young people a fun, engaging experience of different skills so they can make informed decisions about their future career.
