In Suffolk we have some fantastic opportunities for employment across a range of burgeoning industry sectors. By bringing together employers, schools, colleges and training providers, Suffolk Skills Show offers the chance for young people to work out which careers are of interest to them and match their strengths, then find out the best route to get the right skills for the job.
For employers the Show enables them to actively influence the understanding of young people and work with education providers about the kind of workforce skills needed and help them make the right choices early on. In addition it increases awareness of the sectors and contributes to improving employment prospects and availability and retention of the right calibre of recruits in Suffolk.

The Suffolk Skills Show will give you ideas about how you can turn your best subjects into the kind of skills and qualifications you need for apprenticeships and ultimately careers that are available with local and national organisations. You will be able to see demonstrations, watch challenges, and take part in Have a Go events with all kinds of businesses.
