Suffolk Skills & Careers Festival

The Suffolk Skills show is becoming the Suffolk Skills and Careers Festival, it will still be one of the largest employer-led skills and careers event in the area. Since it began in 2014 the event has grown from strength to strength, with continued support from schools and colleges as well as local business and 2019 will be no exception.

Over 25,000 people have visited the event in the past five years to meet employers and discover the career opportunities Suffolk has to offer. Not only is the Show a valuable opportunity for young people to meet employers and trainers from a variety of different industries, it is a platform for businesses to talk to employees of the future.

This year’s show takes place on Wednesday 16 October at Trinity Park, Ipswich and over 90 exhibitors are expected to attend. Booking is now open for the skills and careers event which is for people aged 11-24. 

The Suffolk Agricultural Association (SAA), will deliver the event with key partners including the Royal Norfolk Agricultural Association (RNAA), organisers of the Norfolk Skills and Careers Festival. Together, they will continue to build the events and ensure young people in the region are attending either one or both. The Suffolk County Council, with the New Anglia Local Enterprise and the Norfolk County Council are leading this new way of working and support the steering committee to further enhance the opportunities for young people and businesses in the region.

The Suffolk Skills and Careers Festival connects the next generation to the broad career opportunities Suffolk has available and is a great opportunity for young people to speak to experts.
