A workshop event is a hands-on practical workshop which will spark the interest of young people in a trade or business sector. A workshop event will always be held within the school environment. The aim is to focus pupils on engaging with real life workplace tasks to understand the demands that the world of work will place upon them, and to understand how their current skills are able to be transferred and improved upon.
A Workshop Event is a very focused event in which young people can gain information about the skills, knowledge and qualifications required by a sector or industry. These sorts of events are skills focused and targeted in their approach.
