Get Skilled stands

Get Skilled stands offer in-depth knowledge about certain industries. You can discover new talents and try a variety 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 can 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. Head over and be inspired by the range of products young people in the region have created.

Skills Theatre

The Skills Theatre showcases local talent.

The Skills Theatre is always filled with live demonstrations on anything and everything from performing arts to cookery.

Live News Board

The Live News Board aims to provide you with the chance to find out about current vacancies available to you in your region.

Exhibitors use this board to post job vacancies, volunteer opportunities, traineeships, apprenticeship schemes and any other opportunities.

Ensure you take a look so that if any interest you, you also have the chance to speak to the organisation face-to-face at the event and find out all you can about the role.
