Visit the Award Winning Leeds City College stand at Skills Yorkshire 2018

Skills Yorkshire 2017

Skills Yorkshire 2018 is a fun and interactive careers, jobs and skills event for young people. Since 2007 the event has helped over 100,000 young people to find out about careers, skills and learning options.

The event welcomes visitors of all abilities and ambitions from year 10 and above. Exhibitors - including Leeds City College (who won an award for the best stand in 2017!) - offer apprenticeships and training, as well as college and higher education courses.

Many visitors arrive knowing very little about the careers they are interested in, or which industry sectors to consider, but the combination of interactive features, educational institutions and employers, enable visitors to find out more about the opportunities available.

 

Interactive features in the past have included:

  • Stage performances showcasing dance, drama, music, cookery, hairdressing and floristry 
  • Building and construction challenges including roofing, brickwork, plastering, tiling and paving 
  • Cookery and hospitality taster sessions with cake decorating, flambé and cocktail mixing 
  • Physical challenges such as rock climbing, sporting challenges and buzz reaction testing 
  • Virtual reality, virtual welding, hair and beauty interactive demos 
  • Wheel change/automotive challenge, wiring circuit boards, energy production, crime scene investigation, science demos, IT coding and many more....
