Skills Day out at the National Exhibition Centre

SKILLS DAY OUT AT THE NEC for Year 9

On Thursday 19th November, our Year 9 pupils attended the Skills Day out at the National Exhibition Centre.

The pupils totally enjoyed the experience, speaking to representatives from different companies, talking about various job options and apprenticeships available to young people on leaving school.

It was great to see our boys engaging in good conversation with the young apprentices employed with some of the big companies that were represented.

The pupils were a credit to the school

Well done boys.

THE SKILLS SHOW

This year the Skills Show did not fail to disappoint. Huge crowds arrived at the NEC Birmingham to experience all the different skills experiences on offer, meet hundreds of colleges and employers and cheer on the World Skills UK Skills.

It was amazing for our pupils from years 9 to 11 to experience such a wide range of activities with innovative challenges to get children involved.

The main thrust of this FREE show was to enable people to get into work and apprenticeships, but it also gave our pupils access to some new experiences and opportunities. A huge thank you to all who helped make those visits a huge success.
