Correspondent 7th Mar, 2019

THE largest skills event to ever take place in Worcestershire will be welcoming thousands of students to the Regent Centre, Chateau Impney, Droitwich Spa on Wednesday March 13.

The event will then be open to all young people and parents from 3.30pm to 6.30pm.

A total of 46 schools and colleges will be attending throughout the day to visit more than 100 businesses.

The event will be divided into six key ‘zones’ which will group together like-minded businesses from different industry sectors including science, technology, engineering and maths, tourism & leisure, professional services and creative industries.

The Worcestershire Skills Show has developed a reputation for its engaging and exciting activity-based stands that help to bring the world of work to life for young people.

Students will also have access to the very latest labour market information, to highlight the careers opportunities available.

Delivered by the Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and Worcestershire County Council, through The Careers & Enterprise Company’s national initiative, the event is designed to highlight the many exciting careers opportunities available for younger generations.

Claudia Harris, chief executive for the Careers and Enterprise Company, said: “This event is a fantastic example of how schools and employers are working together to support the development of the future workforce in the Midlands and prepare young people for the fast-changing world of work.

“The scale of the Skills Show this year demonstrates a real commitment to investing in young people in the area and we are delighted to be supporting Worcestershire LEP and Worcestershire County Council in making this a huge success.”
