Skills Scotland Edinburgh

Inspiring the nation's youth Careers and skills events for young people in Scotland

Skills Scotland Edinburgh aims to inspire Edinburgh's youth about their future careers and opportunities. The event attracts young people aged 14-19 from schools, colleges and community groups, alongside their friends and families. 

The events showcase the range of opportunities available to young people including modern apprenticeships, education, training, employment, internships and other options. At the event, everyone can try different activities that will give them a taste of skills and challenges that young people will meet in a range of careers. 

Activities might include wheel change challenges with students studying auto repair, pancake flipping with a hotel and hospitality team, changing a nappy with childcare trainers, building a slate roof with construction lecturers, restyling a hairdo with hairdressing academies, pedalling a dynamo to light a bulb with energy providers, fitness training with personal trainers and lots more.

Free to attend, you can visit Skills Scotland Edinburgh at any time. With so much to see we recommend visiting the event for approximately two hours.

The key to Skills Scotland is getting involved to get inspired.
