Young people looking to enhance their prospects are being invited to attend the South Derbyshire Skills Festival and take advantage of hundreds of career opportunities.

A wide variety of businesses and organisations are taking part in the extravaganza at Swadlincote’s Green Bank Leisure Centre on Wednesday, November 28.

The free event, being held between 4pm and 7pm, will allow 11 to 24 year olds to learn more about industries such as construction, engineering, health, hospitability, lifestyle, digital, and technology.

Attendees can turn their hands to ‘have a go’ activities including virtual welding, flight simulation, beauty and construction to help choose a future career path. Expert careers advice and work experience opportunities will also be on offer.
