Skills South West

The Plymouth Pavilions played host  to a variety of employers, training providers and higher education establishments for the annual Skills South West event.

Over 2 days students from Years 9 and 10 were taken to the popular event which gave them insight into the many jobs, apprenticeships and learning opportunities open to them.

Students were able to meet with industry experts as well as have a go at practical skills such as brick laying, plastering and cooking. 

Exhibitors included Armed Forces, Babcock, Vospers, Plymouth University and many more.

As a result of the event, students generated more knowledge about careers and are more prepared when it comes to choosing their post 16 options.
