Young people to get career insight at skills show
Young people will get an interactive insight into career paths available to them at the Skills Show exhibition in November.
TBG Learning, one of the country's leading youth and adult learning organisations, is hosting an interactive 'guess the career' challenge on their stand at the UK's biggest skills and careers event.
Visitors to TBG Learning's stand will pick a career card and dress up in their chosen profession. Competing against a friend they will take on the challenge to be the first to guess their opponents job title against the clock.
Successful competitors will be in with a chance of winning an Apple iPhone 4, while everyone will be pictured in the outfit of their chosen profession and will receive a picture as a memento.
David Umpleby, head of programme delivery at TBG Learning, which has more than 20 learning centres nationwide, said it is hoped the interactive quiz will act as a good ice-breaker.
"The quiz will be something a bit different to what other exhibitors are doing and will be a good way to help break the ice with young people joining us on our stand.
"The Skills Show is the UK's biggest skills and careers event and is a perfect opportunity for us to showcase our services to support young people to progress on to college, an apprenticeship or into work.
"We deliver a range of learning programmes to thousands of young people through our nationwide learning centres and work with hundreds of employers across the country to provide training, apprenticeships and employment opportunities.
"As well hosting our own quiz we're also looking forward to being quizzed on the various learning routes we have available to young people, from apprenticeships to NVQs - and we're confident we'll have all the answers!"
TBG Learning will be on stand 1077 at the Skills Show at the NEC in Birmingham from November 15 to 17. The event is expected to attract more than 100,000 visitors over the three days.
