THE clock is ticking down towards the 2013 Gloucestershire Skillsfest.

Taking place at Gloucester Rugby Club's Kingsholm Stadium on Tuesday, March 5, the event will bring together businesses, schools, young people, parents and training providers to find out about apprenticeships and potential career opportunities.

Sarah Danson, from the Gloucestershire Apprenticeship Challenge Group which runs the event, said: "Skillsfest 2012 was a great success and this year the event will offer even more.

"There will be dozens of exhibitors available to discuss apprenticeships, training, college and university courses, career routes and jobs all under one roof.

There will also be further taster activities to inspire and inform visitors and employability workshops for schools."

Last year's event was attended by more than 1,300 people including 440 school children.

A number of employers and training providers will be advertising vacancies, while apprentices will be on hand to offer an insight into what it is really like to undertake an apprenticeship programme.
