Hi everyone, Its Chelsea here.
Today I am going to tell you about the Worcestershire skills show event we participated in on Wednesday 18th March.
The event was a huge success and a great opportunity to raise awareness of apprenticeships. Over 700 students attended, this gave us the opportunity to explain what apprenticeships are, what they entail and their benefits. Parents also attended the event; this was great because we were able to share the information with them and therefore raising awareness even more!
We had multiple stands, including a general apprenticeship information stand, an interactive Grounds Maintenance ‘pot your own plant’, a Carpentry ‘hit the nail in the wood’ competition and a gas rig stand where the aim was to solve the puzzle which would release the compressed air and shoot the ball.
The feedback we received from the pupils, parents and the event organisers was excellent, everyone who attended the event enjoyed taking part in the challenges and found them a real eye opener,
The interactive stands were a great hit as this enabled the pupils to find out information in a fun way.
In other news Will presented in a school assembly on Tuesday 24th March – More information on that coming soon.
Thanks for reading,
