Event description


These two employer-led events hosted at Southampton Football Club and Portsmouth Football Club are designed to allow young people, schools, colleges and parents to understand the real opportunities that will be available for young people on completion of their full-time education. There will be a strong focus on apprenticeship opportunities and routes from level 3 to degree level.

We know that local employers are committed to providing excellence in terms of training and investment for our future workforce and this event allows you to gain access to students across schools in the cities aged 14-19 who are investing in their future careers.

What are the benefits?
Benefits are numerous:

  • Direct access to students, teachers, parents and careers advisers
  • One large event as opposed to lots of small school events
  • Networking with other sector and same sector organisations
  • Opportunity to ensure that young people are clear on the skills, attitudes and behaviours they require for a successful career in your organisation

This is an employer event however training providers may attend alongside employers if this will support discussions with young people. Please note, there will not be additional stands available for training providers.

Students will be focussing on vacancies from 2020 onwards, but there may be some young people who are about to complete their post-16 education who will interested in vacancies for this year.
