The events attract thousands of young people from schools, colleges, community groups alongside their friends and families. At the events everyone can try different activities that give a taste of the skills and challenges that young people will meet in a range of careers. These activities are showcased by employers, colleges, training providers and other organisations. Activities might include wheel change challenges with students studying auto repair, pancake flipping with a hotel and hospitality team, changing a nappy with childcare trainers, building a slate roof with construction lecturers, restyling a hairdo with hairdressing academies, pedalling a dynamo to light a bulb with energy providers, fitness training with personal trainers and lots more. The key to Skills Scotland is getting involved to get inspired. Learning is through experience, so visitors get to touch, taste, feel, smell, hear and most importantly try new activities and meet staff face to face, things a website, leaflet or prospectus can never do. The events are open to anyone aged 14-19, whatever their ambitions or abilities. The events showcase the range of opportunities available to young people including modern apprenticeships, education, training, employment, internships and other options.
