The Skills Show is the UK’s biggest skills and careers event, and aims to inspire the fashion designers, web developers and engineers of tomorrow.

Lecturer James McWhinnie said: “It was a real honour to be invited to the event as we were the only university in Scotland to compete. It was a great experience for the students and has helped equip them with real employability skills.”
