Inspiring the Next Generation
Earlier this month, the Tilgear
team was excited to join the WorldSkills UK event at the NEC in Birmingham –
and what a fantastic event it was! Three days of interactive learning with
thousands of young learners from across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern
WorldSkills UK is all about helping young people from all backgrounds go further, faster in their careers. As a partnership between businesses, education and governments, the program aims to accelerate young people’s careers and give them the best start in work and life.
The NEC in Birmingham was buzzing with excitement as young people from across the UK met with around 200 employers, FE colleges and independent training providers – each demonstrating the fantastic opportunities offered by apprenticeships and technical careers.
According to a, almost half of young people believe their education has not prepared them for the world of work. That’s why WorldSkills UK is committed to bridging the gap between education and the workplace and giving young people and employers opportunities to interact.
The competition element was the finale to the regionalcompetitions that the Tilgear team have been following and supporting up and down the country. It was wonderful to see such a breadth of talent and skills on show. Congratulations to all the competitors and to WorldsSkills UK for hosting such a brilliant event.
