Bucks Skills Show 2022

Bucks Skills Show 2022

The Bucks Skills Show is the largest of its kind in the county - so why not be a part of this inspirational experience? 

Aimed at young people aged 11-19, teachers, parent carers, and individuals looking for a career change, the 2022 Skills Show will be bigger and better than ever. At this two day event, those attending will get the opportunity to interactively engage with organisations and next steps providers (universities, colleges and apprenticeship programmes) to find out more about: 

  • what it is like to work in key industries 
  • what skills and qualifications are needed to get their first job 
  • what steps they should take between now and at the point of application 

Why exhibit?

Playing a part in the Bucks Skills Show will help your organisation raise its profile as a key employer in the area….. 

  • Do you have a skill shortage? 
  • Are you concerned about how work-ready young employees are? 
  • Do you want to support young people as they reach key decision points? 
  • Do you want to raise your profile among future Bucks employees and their parents?

We also need representatives from universities, colleges, and independent providers to give advice on taking next steps in education.

What we can offer:

  • FREE stand at the Show including a table and chair
  • Power and internet access
  • Up to 5,000 visitors across the two days
  • Outdoor space for those who want to bring a larger exhibit or activity

What we need from you:

  • An interactive stand that gives young people a chance to explore or try something new
  • Lots of information about career and education choices
  • Please bring a table covering, banners and your activity

Stands will be offered on a first come first serve basis so we recommend you book as soon as possible.
