What’s on at SkillsCymru Cardiff

Get Skilled stands

Dedicated Get Skilled stands offer in-depth knowledge about certain industries. You can discover new talents and try loads of different skills when you get hands-on with a Get Skilled activity. Experts are always on hand to help as you learn something new and try work-based skills; the aim is to ensure each Get Skilled stand represents a different career sector so we promote as wide a range as possible to you, the visitors.

Skills Showcase

Presented in a gallery style area within the event, this feature will showcase products created by individuals as part of their job or training, representing some of the organisations and companies from the wide selection of key industry sectors exhibiting. Head over and be inspired by the range of products young people in Wales have created.

Examples of creations we have had in the past include; a wooden roofing model, re-finished car panel, mini steel bulldozer model, hairdressing mannequins, handmade surfboard with various textiles, dentures and orthodontic appliances and a 3D theatre model, to name a few.
