Virtual fair to inspire young people on jobs
YOUNG people are being invited to find some inspiration at a careers and apprenticeships show.
The Solent Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) is holding the event on Thursday, May 20 from 9am until 7pm.
The virtual fair, a collaborative event between nine LEPs across Hampshire, Dorset and Surrey, is free for young people aged between 15 and 19 and their parents and carers.
The fair will feature interactive webinars, chatrooms, and over 70 employer and apprenticeship provider booths to visit to ask questions.
There will also be an evening session (from 5pm to 8pm) which will cater to parents and carers, with summaries of local industries, job prospects, and educational pathways available to young people.
Rachael Randall, Solent LEP board director, said: ‘This event is hugely important to our area and the Solent LEP is proud to support it. Attracting a whole variety of talent, and en suring people are supported to build the skills they need to find employment opportunities, is critical to the Solent’s productivity in this period of economic recovery. The LEP is committed to helping people develop their skills to support our outstanding business environment.’
