WATCH: Giving young jobseekers the inside track

With 32,500 visitors last year, Skills London is London’s biggest jobs and careers events for 15-24 year olds; providing a chance for young Londoners, and their families and teachers, to speak directly with employers.

The event, running 13-14 November at Excel in London, is delivered in partnership with Prospects. It features over 45,000 job opportunities, including Apprenticeships.

On show will be 200 exhibitors from top employers, universities, colleges, training providers and advisers.

If you know of any students thinking about taking their next steps, please spread the word to families and friends about Skills London. We are aiming to provide school leavers with more advice, more jobs and more inspiration than ever before.


To help give some insight into the type of jobs and career advice Skills London offers, we have made a series of career-focussed videos highlighting the kinds of skills needed to work in these sectors.
