Confident Futures Skills Show 2024

June 11 @ 10:00 am - 5:30 pm

A unique opportunity for employers to inspire the next generation and secure their talent pipeline, the Confident Futures Skills Show is Buckinghamshire’s most exciting experiential careers event aimed at young people and career seekers with special educational needs and disabilities or those facing barriers to entering the workforce.

Those attending the Confident Futures Skills Show will interactively engage with employers and next steps providers (universities, colleges and apprenticeship programmes) to find out more about:

  • What it is like to work in key industries
  • What skills and qualifications are needed to get their first job
  • What steps they should take between now and the point of application

There will also be talks throughout the school visits, and the use of the Bowls Centre for less echo in the space.

Why exhibit?

Playing a part in the Confident Futures Skills Show will help your organisation raise its profile as a diverse and inclusive employer in the area.
