Opportunities Fair 2013 - Education Business Partnership
After the huge success of the 2012 Opportunities fair we are running the event again this year on SATURDAY 19TH OCTOBER 2013. The fair was originally put in place to help raise the aspirations in Portsmouth and create a positive image of the city and highlight the wide range of employment and career opportunities it presents. This will be available again for pupils, parents and families attending.
In the run up to the event we are looking for 100 local Businesses, Training Providers and Colleges to actively participate at this exciting event. We need Businesses to prepare innovative, inspiring ‘stands’ for the students and families. We require engaging, interactive material that can spark/capture the imagination. But much more importantly we need passionate and inspiring people from all businesses, at all levels, in all disciplines and skills sets and from all levels of experience and seniority who will come and directly engage with the participants. The job of everyone participating will be to go home knowing that they inspired at least one child.
We plan to influence at least 2000 attendees on the day.
We are searching for businesses – big and small, local, national and international, from Aerospace to Z, new start or long established enterprise – to join us and to help guarantee yet another resounding success.
The future of our businesses, our City’s long term prosperity, our ability to compete globally and most of all the longer term prospects for our students can be positively impacted by the event. Please come and join us and help to make this an event for the students to remember.
