For us, The Skills Show is a great opportunity to engage with a wide variety of different students and perhaps some students that wouldn’t particularly consider a career in accountancy.
The show is a fabulous place to be. It is vital to inform young people about vocational skills and apprenticeships and The Skills Show is a crucial opportunity to tell young people and their teachers what these are.
