    Absolutely fantastic show. Three hours is nowhere near long enough to see the show in all its glory. We would love to go again next year if we can. Thanks for a superb day out.

    I just think you learn so much more about what is available to you by going The Skills Show. Having a go at the various skills, going to the different displays, meeting some of the employers; this brings everything to life!

    Skills are of vital importance to economic growth in the UK. The Skills Show has inspired a new generation to get the most from further education, skills and apprenticeships.

    The Skills Show is an excellent showcase for the vast array of skills we have here in the UK and hopefully it will provide inspiration to people of all ages and backgrounds.

    A fantastic and informative day with lots to see. It was a great chance for my daughter to try and ask questions, look at colleges and also to try hands on at jobs and work experience. We will be attending next year as my daughter is in year 10. Thank you!

    Really useful day on Saturday. My oldest daughter (year 12) knows she wants to be a midwife and the NHS stand gave her lots of information. My youngest daughter (year 11) isn’t sure what she wants to do but coming to the show has helped her narrow things down. Thank you
