Shaping Portsmouth is proud to announce that the inspirational event, Get Inspired Portsmouth, is back in 2020 and booking is now open for businesses to exhibit.
Get Inspired Portsmouth run by EBP South follows on from the original Shaping Portsmouth initiative which started over 8 years ago. It takes place on Wednesday 22nd January 2020 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 59% of students said the event had changed their mind about what they wanted to do and 60% of students said they would like to work in Portsmouth.
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 1000 students aged 10 -16 from Portsmouth and the surrounding area attending and over 50 businesses exhibiting.
It is FREE for business to exhibit and schools to attend. If you would like to book your exhibition stand visit https://www.ebpsouth.co.uk/Event/gip20s
