News Get Inspired Portsmouth is BACK for 2019! Get Inspired Portsmouth, is back in 2019 and booking is now open for businesses to exhibit - it is FREE to exhibit! It takes place on Wednesday 23rd January 2019 at Portsmouth Guildhall. Get Inspired Portsmouth is an inspirational event in which businesses in Portsmouth are invited to exhibit with an interactive activity that gives young people a practical insight into careers in their industry. The event provides businesses with the opportunity to start developing their recruitment pipeline at an early age and bridge the skills gap. Young people are not aware of the different job roles available. This event allows businesses to educate young people in the local area about the jobs and industries that are on their doorstep. At last years’ Get Inspired Portsmouth 39% of students said the event had changed their mind about what they wanted to do and 71% of students said the event helped them decide on their future career. By educating young people about the skills required for their career pathway from an early age businesses can inform young people of the subjects they need to take at the different stages of their education helping to reduce the skills gap. The event is a huge success. Last year with over 1500 students aged 10 -16 from Portsmouth and the surrounding area attending and over 60 businesses exhibiting. It is FREE for business to exhibit and schools to attend. If you would like to book you exhibition stand visit https://www.ebpsouth.co.uk/Event/getinspiredportsmouth19.
