UKSP Gets Involved in WorldSkills 2011
UKSP, the leading information site for careers in the hospitality, leisure, travel and tourism industry, will be exhibiting at WorldSkills London 2011, the world's largest international skills competition, taking place in London from 5-8 October.
The exhibition, which is part of the Make it Happen area of the competition, will help spark the ambitions of the many young visitors to the event and leave a legacy of young people inspired by skills. UKSP will have a range of activities at their stand to inform and engage visitors, including a quick and fun digital personality test that will help people determine which personality type they are, and therefore which jobs in the HLTT sector they are best suited to.
UKSP will also be running some great competitions from the stand, giving students the chance to win an iPad 2, and teachers the opportunity to win a one-day ‘skills for life' training day for up to 30 pupils. Most importantly, visitors to the stand will be able to get expert advice and information on careers, training and job opportunities within the thriving HLTT sector.
WorldSkills London 2011 will see over 1,000 young competitors from across the globe compete to be the best of the best in their chosen skill, with a total of 46 skill areas represented. The event will also give some 150,000 visitors the unique opportunity to ‘Have a Go' at a wide range of skills and uncover their hidden talents or even a new career.
Taking place in a different country every two years, this is the first time the competition has come to the UK in two decades and it is set to be the biggest event ever held at ExCeL London.
Lesley Potter from UKSP said “We are delighted to be getting involved in WorldSkills London 2011. This really is a once in a generation opportunity to amaze and inspire people about the endless possibilities of working in a very dynamic and growing sector. UKSP has all the information to inform people about an exciting career in the industry.”
Aidan Jones, executive director of WorldSkills London 2011 added: “This event is going to be huge, with a wealth of skills on display – from electronics to plumbing, web design and fashion to cabinet making. We are thrilled to have UKSP on board to join experts from other fields in showcasing how skills shape our world.”
