On the 20th of March 2019, hundreds of students & residents gathered at The Heath, Business & Technical Park for the Halton Skills Show.

Expert exhibitors offered the chance to try hands-on activities and learn by experience about new careers.

There was also the opportunity to meet inspirational apprentices and talk about their experiences.

Visitors were bowled over by the range of pathways to explore including health, sciences, engineering, business, beauty, IT, childcare and more.

The Halton Skills Show began with a VIP launch which welcomed dignitaries including Cllr Eddie Jones who discussed youth, future careers & the importance of developing skills.
