Hundreds of students and residents from across the region celebrated Visitor Economy Week at the Liverpool Skills Show, which took place at Liverpool Football Club.
The venue was the place to experience exciting careers, try new skills and be inspired and the young people, students and residents had the opportunity to meet exhibitors from across the North West and enjoy interactive, hands-on activities inspiring them to explore careers.
Numerous businesses, colleges, universities and training providers packed the event floor and encouraged visitors to find out more about apprenticeships, skills and vocational pathways.
There was a plethora of activities and skills on offer covering every career from construction to hairdressing and digital arts to healthcare.
Attendees could learn from the experts and gain advice and guidance, while apprentices described the benefits of apprenticeships, giving first-hand accounts of their journeys.
Apprenticeship Hub, skills strategy manager, Melanie Dodd said: “We were overwhelmed with the support from our exhibitors and the fantastic numbers of residents and young people who attended the show and met with representatives from Jaguar Land Rover, Agent Academy, Merseyside Fire and Rescue, Mott Macdonald, NHS and Genomic Medicine to name just a few.”
