    The Skills Show is an amazing showcase for the vast variety of skills we have in this country. Just as we celebrate our athletes so we champion our skills and inspire young people to make their own mark on industries ranging from engineering to web design.
    Creating a highly skilled nation will support our economy, safeguard our industries and improve the prospects of Britain.

    The Skills Show has given our pupils a unique insight into the wide range of career opportunities open to them. They have returned to school with new ideas, ambitions and aims for the future, and the excitement and enthusiasm they have shown for different jobs as a result has been exciting to witness.
