The Norfolk Skills and Careers Festival is an interactive event aimed at 14-24 year olds to help inspire them for their future career and to demonstrate the various options available. It will be the only major skills and careers event to take place in Norfolk in 2018. In 2017 the Festival attracted 5000 visitors from over sixty schools.
Groups from schools and colleges will arrive in organised time slots throughout the two-day festival. Individuals are welcome to attend too.
The Festival will be structured around a number of employment sectors: Energy, Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering, ICT – Digital and Creative, Financial and Insurance Services, Leisure, Tourism and Culture, Food and Farming, Agri-Tech and Life Sciences, Health and Social Care, Construction, Higher Education and the Armed Forces. It is planned that a Norfolk and Waveney Building Apprentices’ Competition will take place, led by RG Carter.
