Skillcity 2005

SKILLCITY 2005 was the UK's largest ever interactive careers and training event for young people, held in London's Excel Center in July.

Around 120,000 visitors aged between 12 and 30 passed through its doors to uncover the wealth of skills-based career opportunities that vocational training has to offer.

This unique event gave visitors the chance to experience and 'have-a-go' at a range of skills, see the best of the UK's practitioners in action and pick up information on jobs and careers across a range of industry sectors.

West Ham United participated actively in the event sending coaches from its Football in the Community department to offer demonstrations and advice on the skills involved in football coaching.
