Skills Yorkshire and Humber Careers Fair


In October, Year 11 students visited the Skills Yorkshire and Humber Careers Fair at Centenary Pavilion, Elland Road, Leeds.

The annual event, hosted by Prospects Ltd, is the region’s largest careers, jobs, skills and apprenticeship event.  The event has been created to inspire young people and open their minds to the range of employment, training and learning options available in our area.

The students really engaged with the day and enjoyed demonstrating their employability and communication skills. They needed to introduce themselves and interact with the exhibitors in order to find out as much information as possible in an allocated time. 

Accompanying staff were also on hand to encourage, advise and direct students as they engaged with different stalls. 

Students met face-to-face with exhibitors including potential employers such as the British Army, Ernst & Young, Leeds United, NHS, Northern Power Grid, RAF and many more.
