“I work with young people from vulnerable backgrounds to help them explore opportunities and unlock their potential. For some students, the idea of further education or apprenticeships is out of reach, and it’s my job to show them that these options, and more, are available after they finish the school year.
I was impressed by what was offered at Skills London. It’s free to attend, which was a bonus to my students. I was shocked by the size of the event – it was huge! There was something to look at in every direction and there was a buzz of excitement in the air.
The fair did an excellent job of broadening their horizons. For vulnerable young adults, they don’t necessarily think they fit into the apprenticeships or college courses, so it was fantastic to see them speak and engage with professionals who started from those positions.
I would encourage anyone thinking about their next steps or who needs a little help in the right direction to attend Skills London. I’m very proud of the students I came with and excited to see what their future holds.”
