Book Your Free Visit Today
Our Skills England series are designed with 15-19 year-olds in mind, but the events are
free for anyone who would like to visit. Our events are accessible and inclusive for people of all abilities.
Whether you are a student, parent, teacher or just trying to figure out your next steps, Skills England is open to everyone. A visit to any of our events will ensure you understand all of the pathways available to you, whether that’s further/higher education, apprenticeships or just straight into the world of work.
Skills England brings you face to face with your future.
Visiting as a school group? (ideal for years 10, 11, 12 and 13)
Please note, Skills Humber is now fully booked for educational groups on Wednesday 6th March. If you are still interested in attending, please call us on 01823 362800 to be added onto our waiting list. Alternatively, the evening opening still has slots available. Please book via Eventbrite.
Educational group bookings are still available for Skills South West and Skills North West. To book either of these events, please use the booking form at the bottom of this page.
A group visit is a great way for your school, college sixth form or community group to deliver dynamic careers education, information, advice and guidance and to ensure your students have a meaningful interaction with employers, further education and higher education providers as outlined in the government’s careers strategy.
Upon booking, group attendees from schools or colleges will receive free classroom resources to help you prepare your students to ensure they get the most out of this visit.
We also offer travel bursaries available to groups of 50 or more. £2 per student is available for up to 200 students, after this a £1 bursary per student will apply. Terms and conditions apply.
