This annual event supports North Lincolnshire Council’s Vision; to develop aspiring people by increasing the skills and education outcomes in North Lincolnshire; to remain competitive with the rest of the UK. We know how important it is that young people receive information, advice and guidance on a range of different jobs and career paths; to help them make decisions about their future.
What’s on Offer
Each year exhibitors at the event include a variety of local and national companies, further education institutions, organisations and training providers. The event is supported by The Skills Show, the European Social Fund and the National Careers Service.
Giving you the opportunity:
- to gain an insight into what it’s like to work in various types of industry
- to engage in experiences reflecting the training; learning and job opportunities in the current and future employment market
