Skills London is a unique opportunity to find out about the immense variety of jobs available in London at an incredibly important time in your lives.
The stands will be packed to the rafters with information about how to access jobs and apprenticeships in technology, media, culture, construction, finance and professional business services and many more.
There are some wonderful opportunities to get hands on and have a go at trying out new skills for yourselves.
And you get the chance to talk to employers, recruiters and careers advisers, meet apprentices and students, as well as hear some truly inspirational stories that I hope will help you choose a path to a successful career.
