Derbyshire Skills Festival

Derbyshire Skills Festival is the largest careers information and guidance event for young people in Derbyshire.

The free event is aimed at students aged 15 to 19, including those in year 11 who are considering their options after school, with have-a-go activity sessions for young people to test their skills.

This year it's being held at:

  • The Roundhouse, Derby College on Wednesday 23 and Thursday 24 September 2015
  • Chesterfield College on Tuesday 29 September 2015.

The events will open from 3.30pm to 8pm. There will also be sessions for young people with special educational needs and disabilities and young people who are not in education, employment or training (NEET) will also be invited.

The festival is an opportunity for young people leaving school or college or looking for a job with training to talk to the experts and get all the information and guidance they need under one roof. And visitors to the event will also be able to take part in have-a-go sessions to test their skills and give them an idea what different careers might be like.

Organisations interested in having a stand at one or more of the venues should contact us for more details tel: 01629 536545 or email:
