Skills Somerset is a skills and careers event for 14-19 year olds and their families. The November 2009 event was a great success and was one of the biggest events of its kind in the county with approximately 3,000 visitors. The event informed and inspired young people with hands on features, activities and demonstrations offering a real insight into a host of different careers, whatever their ability or ambition. 

The Somerset Universities Partnership Project is

a partnership between Somerset, Richard Huish, Strode , Bridgwater, Yeovil Colleges and Somerset County Council backed by the Universities of Bournemouth and Plymouth to support the development and opportunities to access of Higher Education in Somerset.
