The exhibition, featuring some of the Dover district’s biggest employers will showcase the many new developments that are creating new jobs, training, and business opportunities.  This includes:

  • Investment in town centre leisure and retail at the Dover St James development
  • Development of a new cargo terminal and logistics hub at Dover Western Docks
  • Construction of new manufacturing space at the Discovery Park Enterprise Zone
  • Opening of a New Visitor Centre at the Betteshanger Country Park
  • Launch of the new Dover Maritime Skills Academy
  • Investment in skills and training at East Kent College.

The exhibition is being organised by Dover District Council in conjunction with East Kent College, who will be providing a whole host of interactive activities in the Skills Zones where people can get hands on with engineering, construction and building trades, automotive, and IT.

Cllr Paul Watkins, Leader of Dover District Council, said: “We’re seeing the biggest investment in the district’s future in a generation.  We want local people and businesses to benefit with opportunities to gain new skills, careers and business opportunities so we’re bringing together a whole host of employers, colleges, and training providers under one roof.  It will also be an opportunity for small businesses to network with some of the district’s biggest companies.”

Graham Razey, Principal of East Kent College, said: “Dover district has been a real success story, with fantastic growth across a range of sectors. We’re extremely happy to be playing a part in that story by delivering the high quality skills training and apprenticeships which Dover needs to keep on growing.

“We’ll have a number of our curriculum areas at the Dover Skills & Business Expo, and will be holding a range of interactive activities for those who are interested in finding out more about what they could learn at East Kent College’s Dover Campus.”
