    Three Birmingham area networks, North West, South and South West successfully bid for 18,000 to support and prepare students for activities around the World Skills Show event held at the NEC in November 2012.

    Staff and 595 learners from the above schools responded to an online survey to provide feedback on their experiences of the World Skills Show. This has also helped to develop the Skills Show Toolkit.

    The Skills Show Toolkit comprises of:

    I didnt do any activities as it was so crowded but I did watch others taking part. I watched the beauty therapists and really enjoyed watching the different techniques and products they were using.

    No.

    I want to do beauty therapy and hope to go on to college or do an apprenticeship when I leave school.

    I could tell from the show that beauty therapy was popular as it was so busy, I would still like to do this as a career when I leave school. After seeing the beauty therapists in action I cant wait to do this as a job, and I am hoping to do some work experience this year at a beauty salon.
