More than 4,000 young people attended the Suffolk Skills Show at Trinity Park in Ipswich yesterday, getting an insight into the huge range of careers available with local employers.
Parties of pupils from 38 schools across the county travelled to the event, which was also open on a “drop in” basis for other students and parents.
More than 100 employers were represented at the show, with the various stands offering a total of 75 “hands-on” activities for visitors to try out.
The annual event is supported by Suffolk County Council, with Suffolk Chamber of Commerce as a partner and Easton & Otley College as main sponsor.
Clare Dyble, director of enterprise and marketing at the college, which showcased all of its departments at the event, said: “We support the Suffolk Skills Show because, as an education provider, we find it really important to show young people from Suffolk, and beyond, the opportunities available to them.”
