Now in its fifth year Skills Scotland Edinburgh, in partnership with My World of Work, is a one day event taking place at the Royal Highland Centre in Edinburgh on Thursday 9 November 2017 between 9.30am and 3pm.
Over 2,500 visitors are expected to come along.
Skills Scotland events are all about inspiring the nation’s youth about their future careers and opportunities. The events attract thousands of young people from schools, colleges, community groups alongside their friends and families. At the events they can try different activities that give them a taste of the skills and challenges they will meet in a range of careers.
These activities are showcased by employers, colleges, training providers and other organisations. Activities might include wheel change challenges with students studying auto repair, pancake flipping with a hotel and hospitality team, changing a nappy with childcare trainers, building a slate roof with construction lecturers, restyling a hairdo with hairdressing academies, pedalling a dynamo to light a bulb with energy providers, fitness training with personal trainers and lots more.
