The Liverpool City Region Skills Show is taking place on 18th June 2018 between 9:30am and 6:00pm at the Exhibition Centre Liverpool. It is a free one day event organised by Liverpool City Region Apprenticeship Hub, open to parents, carers, teachers and careers professionals from the region, and provides a unique opportunity to discover a wide range of career and apprenticeship opportunities through hands-on activities, interactions with employers and career related seminars.
The event will be useful for parents, carers and students to find out what choices are available once children leave school or college, and how they can be supported to make informed choices and find accurate and up-to-date information about careers, apprenticeships, training, courses and qualifications.
You are invited to come along with your child for free at any time throughout the day until 6.00pm. Simply book your free ticket in advance by visiting www.apprenticeshiphub.org.uk
You may wish to encourage your child to:
* Visit the different stands, talk to the exhibitors and try the activities
* Find out what the various companies do, how they recruit staff and what they can offer
* Think about what suits them, not what their friends are doing
* Explore lots of different options, rather than just their ideal choice
* Not be scared to talk to the exhibitors, they’re all really friendly
After the event, you may take time to discuss what you found out and the options available, decide what exhibitors you may want to contact directly and which open days you wish to attend. If your child is particularly interested in a certain company or organisation, you may wish to encourage them to contact them, research online and follow their social media sites for further information.
We hope you find the event a fantastic opportunity, assisting in making decisions regarding your child’s future education and career direction.
