EXPERT career advisors and hands-on activities will be available at a skills show next month.
The event, hosted by the Local Enterprise Partnership, offers a selection of ‘have a go’ activities, including estate agency, hair and beauty and motor vehicle maintenance where visitors can try a number of job roles.
There will be around 30 exhibitors on the day, which has been organised by Weston College, with people from a number of different careers available to talk to about their jobs and offer advice.
The National Careers Service will also be on hand to provide information on skills, career choices, job opportunities and qualifications.
Event organiser James Wilmot said the aim was to offer a ‘live prospectus’ to visitors.

“It’s really important for the young adults to explore their options.
“They may feel particularly good at one area of work but just by trying something new or something different can open up a world of possibilities.
“We want them to take away something new, experience a new idea or a new nugget of information which will be really useful for them further down the line.”
The Skills Show Experience, funded by the European Social Fund, will be at the Winter Gardens on March 4.
It is open to schools from 10am-2pm, and the general public at 3-7pm.
