Over 1400 pupils from local schools will be flocking to a major skills event organised by City of Wolverhampton College at Wolverhampton Racecourse later this month.
The Skills Show, on Wednesday 23 March, is aimed at 16-25-year-olds and is an opportunity to meet local employers, find out about apprenticeships and job opportunities in the city, and get information on college courses to give them the qualifications they need for their future career.
Visitors will also be able to have a go at a range of work-related activities to give them a taste of the skills they would develop for a range of different industries including timed wheel change and carpentry challenges, bricklaying, spray painting, computer games testing, music sequencing, 3D modelling, business games, neck massages, nail art and cup cake decoration.
Over 40 organisations will be exhibiting at the event including Connexions, The Co-operative Childcare, Centro, Express and Star, Grand Theatre, JLR, Lloyds Banking Group, RAF Museum Cosford, the Army, Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust, University of Wolverhampton, University of Wolverhampton racing team, Wates Construction Ltd, West Midlands Police and Wolverhampton City Council.
The show will run from 10am to 4pm and places can be booked online at www.wolvcoll.ac.uk/event/skillsshow
