Plans for the 10th Anniversary Carlisle Skills Fair are now well underway and will be held on Thursday 25th January, 2-6.30pm at Carlisle College. Sponsors of the annual event include pladis, one of the world’s leading biscuit and snack manufacturers with a site right here in Carlisle, the Cumberland Building Society, one of the region’s most familiar and trusted financial businesses based in Carlisle, and Persimmon, one of the UK’s largest housebuilders.
Over 70 businesses and organisations have already signed up to attend including our supporters, Inspira, Carlisle College, Cumberland Council, Jobcentre Plus Carlisle, Lakes College, University of Cumbria, and Gen 2, JTL, PHX, and Systems People training providers.
Commenting John said, “I am always grateful to local businesses and organisations for the huge amount of support for the Carlisle Skills Fair. Our 2024 skills fair will see more employers and training providers attending than ever before and it’s still not too late to sign up for a place. The last few spaces for exhibitors still remain and businesses can book a place by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
For young people, and those looking to return to work or change careers this is the place to have informal conversations with local experts who can give good quality advice and guidance on the employment and training options available in the Carlisle area, now and in the future.”
