Meeting with young people from all over the UK enables us to show them the wide range of career opportunities available with our company, which they may not have realised or considered.”
With use of technology, we are aiming to use artificial reality and Snapchat to give visitors an insight into some of the careers available through apprenticeships, For example, becoming a police officer, a lawyer, an accountant or an engineer.
Dr Neil Bentley-Gockmann OBE, Chief Executive, WorldSkills UK said: “LIVE has an enormous impact on the lives of young people as they embark on identifying their career opportunities. It is great to be working with The BAME Apprenticeship Alliance to get our visitors excited about a career through an apprenticeship.”
At the heart of LIVE, are the National Finals of the WorldSkills UK Competitions. Run in over 70 skill areas, the competitions are proven to raise standards in apprenticeships and training. Apprentices and students from all of the UK will compete with the aim of being named the UK Champion in their chosen skill.
