Michelle was the face of SkillsCymru – will you be next?

The hunt for aspiring TV presenters, radio DJs or YouTubers is on, as young people across Wales are encouraged to apply to be the “face” of SkillsCymru.

SkillsCymru is Wales’ largest annual series of careers, skills, jobs and apprenticeship events and will return to Llandudno and Cardiff in October 2017.

The organisers are searching for new “hosts”, who will be followed by a film crew as they explore the event and interview exhibitors and visitors.
