The Jersey Skills Show is the ideal extension to the careers advice and information provided by local schools. We aim to enhance the opportunities for Jersey’s young people, to come along and find out more about the broad range of jobs on the island. With hands on, interactive exhibitions and sections, kids are free to roam around and head to the sectors that inspire them. The Jersey Skills Show is a place for career questions - schools have the opportunity to allow children to find out, first hand, about the jobs they may want to do - and discover the jobs they might not want to do. The Jersey Skills Show presents an exciting and interactive environment, which encourages deeper thought about which careers our young people might want to follow after leaving school; engaging with them and explaining what skills and qualifications they will need to make their work dreams come true.
