Skills Cymru- Oct 2017

Skills Cymru is an annual careers fair organised by Prospects in conjunction with the Welsh Government. This was our third year of participation having attended jointly with IET in 2016

This year we were invited to join Techniquest Glyndwr on their stand. The event started on the Wednesday evening followed by a full day on Thursday Oct 5th

The event attracts potential employers and academic institutions from across the Region with careers prospects ranging from catering, hairdressing to nuclear new build and the armed forces.

 As in previous years, we ran an interactive stand with a robotic Rubic cube solver, Stirling engine and lots of careers literature and freebies. Techniquest had volunteers operating a 3D printer, a ‘slime’ maker as well as promotional material for the university.

Many schools across the region arrange for pupils to attend. The rural nature of our region means many schools need to travel long distances to attend. Nevertheless, we had participants from schools as far as Bala, Llangollen, Wrexham and Anglesey.

 The event is always extremely busy with waves of schoolchildren looking for career ideas. A lot of young people were interested in both apprentice and university routes to engineering, many of them girls.

 

The following week the event moved to Cardiff.
