drp joined a selection of businesses as an exhibitor at the
highly interactive and increasingly popular Worcestershire Skills Show on 9th
March. Held at the Sixways Stadium, it is Worcestershire’s largest careers
event, and allows young people to discover careers that interest them, and take
part in hands-on activities during the day.
the event weshared our expert
knowledge with young students, addressed the skills or qualifications they may
need to follow their career paths, as well as answered any questions about the
creative industry, and what drp has
to offer. As a business we consistently support and hire apprentices, and
promote the benefits to both businesses and young people.
The Worcestershire Skills Show is definitely an event that is imperative in helping young people decide on their career path
A variety of businesses showcased at the event with a range of interactive activities. At drp’s stand students were able to watch some of our work through film, with the chance to interact with some of our products. Many of the students attempted the drp rocket run game we produced for an internal event. Worcester Bosch offered the chance to wire a plug to turn on a light bulb, and Royal Navy taught students Naval speak.
Ryan Curtis-Johnson, Head of PR & Marketing, commented, “The Worcestershire Skills Show is definitely an event that is imperative in helping young people decide on their career path. It was great to speak with the students and explain the different elements to drp. Looking back to when I was at school or college there was nothing like this, and if there had been I would have found it extremely useful. There is a huge amount of pressure on the next generation, especially on how they will be able to achieve their career goals. Businesses are thinking smarter, and helping to hire new talent by exposing the opportunities that they have, with more content on how to apply. Young people can ‘get their foot in the door’ with work experience, apprenticeships or through degrees. Students just have to see which one works best for them.”
