Top marks to Bucks Skills Show for inspiring students in challenging times!
The annual Bucks Skills Show is the county’s largest interactive and experiential skills festival. This year’s event which was delivered virtually, attracted over 5,000 visitors. Helping motivate students after lockdown, demonstrate why subjects are relevant to real life and inspire young people to be positive about their futures. The event included inspirational speakers from businesses such as McAfee, Esri, Capgemini and BAM Construction who demonstrated how the curriculum is used in their every-day-jobs. Gavin Williamson MP, Secretary of State for Education, congratulated the Bucks LEP and the Bucks Skills Hub on the event: “That is a brilliant example of how people can inspire children to make them understand that what they are learning in the classroom has a real relevance to the world of work, giving them the enthusiasm to look at different careers and different opportunities that they might not have considered before.” To view videos of this year’s presentations and workshops please click here.
