IBC Skills Show

On Wednesday 26th June, 13 of our Y8 pupils attended the Inspiring the Black Country Skills Show at Dunstall Racecourse to look at different career options. 

This event is in its third year and has been successful in bringing schools and employers/colleges and training providers together. Each exhibitor provided an activity for the pupils to get involved with, as it’s not a traditional careers fair. This year there were several new exhibitors that haven’t been at the event before, so bringing a wider spectrum of sectors for the young people. This event provides an insight into the world of work, enabling young people to engage with local employers through industry related tasks, hands on interactive activities that simulate real roles.

Pupils got the opportunity to try out various activities linked to job roles that companies offer including first aid, Armed Forces, construction, public house landlord, special effects make up and other media avenues. 

This trip has enabled and inspired young people to make informed decisions about their future subject selection and how subjects relate to the workplace and ‘real’ roles within business
