Chelmsford Skills Festival 2020

Posted on: November 14, 2019

Chelmsford City Council are looking for organisations to attend a Skills Festival in 2020 and talk to students about career opportunities and wellbeing.

2019 saw the first ever Chelmsford Skills Festival, which showcased the many different jobs and career paths available to year 8 students before they commit to their GCSE options in year 9.

The event had 40 exhibitors hosting over 70 activities including landscaping, First Aid, and Virtual Reality construction. All of the activities were designed to offer the pupils real insight into a variety of job roles.

Chelmsford City Council are aiming to grow the Chelmsford Skills Festival and offer a wider variety of organisations and activities in 2020. They not only want to provide information on careers, but ways to build transferable skills through recreation activities, as well as offering support to those that may be going through difficulties affecting their learning at this very crucial time.

If your organisation would be interested in participating in next year’s festival by demonstrating what you do in a fun and interactive way, please contact [email protected]
