Are you a parent carer of a teenager?

Derbyshire skills festival is a series of careers information and guidance events for young people in Derbyshire, including those with disabilities or special educational needs.

Derbyshire Skills Festival is organised by Derbyshire County Council and supported by Derby City Council.

This free event is aimed at students aged 13 to 19, particularly those in year 11 who are considering their options.

This year the events are being held at:

  • Proact Stadium, 1866 Sheffield Road, Chesterfield, S41 8NZ on Wednesday 18 September 2019
  • Derby Arena, Royal Way, Derby, DE24 8JB on Wednesday 25 and Thursday 26 September 2019 (two days)

Opening times are from 1:30pm to 7:30pm (last admission 6:45pm).

It's an exciting opportunity for young people leaving school or college, looking for an apprenticeship or a job with training, to get all the information and guidance they need under one roof.

Visitors will be able to take part in have-a-go sessions and activities to test their skills, giving them an insight into what different careers might suit them.

There will be sessions for young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
