Skills Street is an immersive and innovative world of work learning and training experience, developed to inspire and inform children, young people, and adults from across the South Yorkshire region. Based on the site of the UK's newest theme park, 'Gulliver's Valley', Skills Street will transform the way the region delivers careers training for schools with this new hands-on approach to developing and honing skills.
