Hundreds of students & residents gathered at the Totally Wicked Stadium for the Knowsley & St Helens Skills Show. Attendees experienced exciting careers, tried new skills and discovered more about apprenticeships!
The Knowsley & St Helens Skills Show held at the end of last month was the third in a series of four FREE events brought to you by Liverpool City Region Apprenticeship Hub and organised by All About STEM.
At the Knowsley & St Helens Skills Show, exhibitors from numerous fields inspired students & residents with apprenticeship & careers advice, new skills & hands-on experiences.
The one-day event packed the stadium’s function room floor & executive boxes with attendees who were keen to plan their future and discover new vocational pathways. Beauty, construction, joinery, health, sciences, business, IT, childcare, the opportunities were endless! Each expert exhibitor brought along a team of apprentices to discuss their own inspirational career journeys.
The Knowsley & St Helens Skills Show began with a VIP launch which welcomed dignitaries including Cllr Brennan & Cllr Derek Long who discussed the importance of future skills and regional programmes.
