Bucks Skills Show goes online for 2020
Buckinghamshire Skills Show is going online-only for 2020 and will be hosting a range of events for students in all year groups.
The annual show helps young people explore careers and work out how to get there – but this year looks different! The exciting two-part event runs from 9 – 13 November and is entirely virtual.
Part 1) Bringing lessons to life in-school: teachers can pick from a timetable of 30-minute live online employer-led careers in the curriculum lessons for Year 9 students to showcase how effective Gatsby Benchmark 4 can be. These include activities tailored to special schools. See the school brief below for more details.
Part 2) Student/parent webinars and 1:1 careers advice.
Year 11, 12 and 13 have the opportunity to learn about further education, local apprenticeships and hear from people in the creative, healthcare industries and more. You’ll be joined by experts from the workplace and education who can give you tips and knowledge.
