The Skills Show is the nation’s largest skills and careers event helping to shape the future of a new generation, by helping young people to go further, faster in their careers.

Attracting over 72,000 visitors, this FREE event provides ‘Have a Go’ experiences that inspire young people to explore careers and motivates them to find out more about the world of work.

Over 200 national and local employers and training organisations will be on on-hand to engage with young people, their parents and educators. There are hundreds of great career ideas to explore, including jobs of the future.

The centrepiece of the show is the WorldSkills UK Competitions finals where almost 600 trainees and apprentices compete in public to win a coveted place representing the UK on the international stage.
