Skills London, the capital’s biggest free jobs and careers event for young people returned back to ExCel London on 21-22 November. From all different backgrounds and areas; 15-24 year olds, parents and teachers joined the event to come and find everything needed to know about Apprenticeships, Traineeships, internships, jobs, courses, careers advice and more. This gave visitors the chance to meet the National Apprenticeship Service and National Careers Service to talk to people about jobs.
