Skills shortages are the single largest challenge facing UK PLC and it is essential we help prepare our young people for their future careers.
We are delighted to announce the Careers and Apprenticeship Show at the Bournemouth International Centre on 26th September 2018.
This unique county-wide business-led event will bring schools, colleges, universities and businesses across Dorset together and will showcase the very best that Dorset has to offer in relation to careers and apprenticeships. This event offers businesses direct engagement with young people aged 15-19 across all schools in Dorset who are investigating their future careers.
This major event offers businesses across all sectors the opportunity to:
- Directly talk face to face with students, parents and carers
- Discuss careers and apprenticeship opportunity within your business
- Reach all Dorset schools through one single event
- Develop long-term relationships with schools across Dorset
We are delighted to have support and sponsorship for this event from SUN (NCOP) partnering with Careers and Enterprise, Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership, Dorset Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Young Chamber, Bournemouth Borough Council, Borough of Poole, Christchurch Borough Council East Dorset District Council and Dorset County Council.
