Doncaster Skills Academy - "Skills Fest"
Is this event for me?
Skills Fest 2019 is designed to inspire, enthuse and motivate young people to think about prospective careers available to them and the relevant progression routes they can take to achieve their ‘Dream Job’. With over 2,200 young people confirmed to attend, Skills Fest 2019 is set to be our biggest and best yet.
Why should I attend?
As an exhibitor you will not only gain exposure to over 2,200 young people and a variety of schools, you will also have the chance to network with the various other organisations in attendance. We also feel that your organisation can provide the young people attending with vital information needed in order for them to make a fully informed decision about their future career.
Skills Fest 2019 will be a fantastic platform for you to not only showcase your organisation, its products and services, but also to encourage young people to want to work for your organisation.
In order for you to get the most out of the event we suggest that you demonstrate the products and services you offer as well as bringing along a ‘Have a Go’ memorable and interactive activity for the young people to get involved in. Doing this will make your stand popular and attract more young people. Students will be voting for their favourite exhibitor through the day so be creative!
We are also asking all exhibitors to invite apprentices and graduates from within their own organisations to Skills Fest, to engage with attendees and give them a first-hand insight into the career pathways in your industry. This again will make your stand more attractive and popular with the young people, thus gaining maximum exposure.
