Barking and Dagenham College has organised a “skills show experience” to offer people advice and guidance about careers, apprenticeships and traineeships.

The event – one of five taking place across London between March and July – takes place at the college on 30 April.

It will feature competitions, employer and career talks, advice and guidance sessions and opportunities for participants to try out new skills ranging from perfume making and theatrical make-up to construction and TV production.

Parents, carers and teachers are also encouraged to take part to find out about career opportunities.

Cathy Walsh, principal and CEO said: “We’re excited to be holding The Skills Show Experience at Barking and Dagenham College.

“It is a rare opportunity for young people and their parents to find out more about the highest quality advanced technical training opportunities that lead to work, as well as the skills, experience and aptitudes that UK employers want.

It’s also a great opportunity for young people to explore a range of career paths and to discover what they are good at.”

The day is supported by The Skills Show, The National Careers Service, and it is co-funded by the European Social Fund.
