Inspirational careers fairs

Young people are inspired in their career choices through engagement with employers. Our interactive careers fairs are one of the ways to raise large number of students aspirations. We have several careers events that take place across Hampshire and surrounding areas.

By showcasing your industry and company at a careers fair you are helping young people to make informed choices about their future, showing the skills required and inspiring your future workforce. 

Exhibit at a virtual interactive careers fair

Inspire 100's of young people into your industry by demonstrating the skills required through an interactive activity that showcases your businesses or industry. These events which give your business an opportunity to develop the pipeline from a young age.

Get Inspired

Businesses are required to create a short 5 minute activity that young people can take part-in individually or in groups or it can be piece of equipment you use in your job that young people can 'explore' e.g. bus company - buses or theatre 'lighting' etc. The activity must to be related to the organisation or industry.

Young people will then freely explore the the businesses activities. The purpose is to engage them in a fun way that then enables them to ask you questions about job roles, industry etc and through success of completing the activity they will see that maybe if they can do that, they could do a job in your industry.

Help create a spark and inspire the next generation.  

STEM Events (Teen Tech and Primary STEM)

The Primary STEM fair and Secondary STEM fair events give your business an opportunity to develop the pipeline from a young age.

Businesses are required to create a short 20 or 30 minute STEM activity that young people in groups can take part in. Businesses will need to supply the equipment and resources. The activity should be fun and you could have prizes for the group quickest time if they are making a car etc, or furthest plane etc.

The aim if for young people to have fun, take part in a STEM activity and at the end linking the STEM activity to the jobs so they can see if they can build a toy car, they would build other things and if they had fun they might enjoy a career in that industry.

Young people will be in groups will rotate throughout the day between the businesses.
