What’s on at SkillsCymru Cardiff 2018

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.

Apprenticeship Ambassadors & Apprenticeship Ambassador Hub

Apprenticeship Ambassadors from local companies will be roaming the event and will be able to speak to other young people about their own career journeys. There will also be a timetable of apprentices from a whole range of industries available in the Apprenticeship Ambassador Hub.

Careers Hub

Need answers to your careers questions? Why not drop into the Careers Clinics hosted by Careers Wales – information, advice and guidance for young people, parents and teachers.

Virtual Reality Headsets

Come and see workplace settings using the Careers Wales VR headsets to show 360 degree videos, giving you a taster of what a career in aerospace engineering, health and social care, leisure and tourism and media could involve.

Take a look inside the Airbus Factory, watch a day in the life of staff members from Zip World, get an insight into filming and design at Tinopolis and follow job roles at a busy NHS hospital.

Skills Theatre

Back by popular demand to SkillsCymru Cardiff, and sponsored by Cardiff and Vale College, the Skills Theatre will feature engaging interactive demonstrations from exhibitors. We’ll have a timetable bursting with a whole host of fun activities that will show off the range of opportunities available at the event.

Live News Board

The Live News Board aims to provide you with the chance to find out about current vacancies available in Wales including, job vacancies, volunteer opportunities, traineeships, apprenticeship schemes and any other opportunities. The exhibitors post these vacancies on the Live News Board at the event for you to view. Ensure you take a look so that if any interest you, you have the chance to speak to the organisation face-to-face at the event and find out all you can about the role. This is a great way to get ahead of the competition, so don’t forget to take a look!
