Tresham skills on show
Students and staff from Tresham have returned from the annual Skills Show 2012 where they held demonstrations and ‘Have a Go’ activities to showcase what Tresham has to offer.
In partnership with Snap On Tools, Tresham invited visitors to ‘Have a Go’ at vehicle diagnostic testing on Thursday 15th and Friday 16th November. Staff spoke to young people, careers advisers and apprenticeship providers about the wide variety of vocational courses available at the college.
To close the activities, students from the BTEC Forensic Science course travelled to Birmingham’s NEC with their tutor to hold a CSI Skills Show on Saturday 17th. Students held a fantastic demonstration of how forensic photography and fingerprinting is used to gather evidence from a crime scene.
Hundreds of young people and their families visited the Skills Show to receive careers advice and find out more about the training on offer at colleges across the country.
Colin Needle, Head of School for Apprenticeships said:
“This year’s Skills Show has been a fantastic opportunity to highlight the talents of young people and adults that are unlocked at colleges across the UK.
Our students were great ambassadors for further education and spoke to visitors about their experience for the BTEC Forensic Science courses as well as college life itself.
Skills in Body art to mechatronics were on show this year and I would recommend that anyone interested in furthering their education or providing the right advice to young people should attend next year!”
