Future Skills Centre to host education and career event for Bordon Youth
‘Future Horizons’, a skills, education and career event for young people in Whitehill & Bordon, will be held at the Future Skills Centre in Bordon on Tuesday 23 January, 18:30 – 20:30.
Parents and young people aged 13-19 will be able to learn more about the wide range of employment and career opportunities available to them locally and regionally.
Attendees will experience an evening of learning and insight, including a networking section with local business representatives, and inspirational talks from Ashleigh Porter Exley, winner of the BBC’s Young Apprentice 2012 and one of The Queen’s Young Leaders, and a keynote address from Alan Bullock of Alan Bullock Careers.
Ashley will talk about the opportunities available to young people and how they can reach their potential, whilst Alan’s talk is aimed at helping young people to make sense of the quickly evolving world of work and explore career and skill paths previously unknown to them.
Learning about future employment trends and the changing world of work is more important than ever and this event will help young people to understand the many options open to them. Further education comes in many forms including paid opportunities such as apprenticeships and this event will make clear the vast array of choice and help explain specific requirements for different professions.
The networking aspect of the event will give young people the chance to speak directly with regional business representatives, offering them the knowledge they need to take the next step from school to further education, training or work. Attendees will see local businesses presenting alongside university representatives and educational providers, allowing them to speak openly with company representatives about skill requirements and career opportunities.
This event is held in conjunction with the National Careers Service, Future Skills Centre and Mill Chase Academy. The combination of local colleges, universities and businesses at this event provides a broad range of knowledge and perspective for attendees to take full advantage of.
Naomi Metcalfe, community development officer, Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company says:
“This event is a fantastic chance for young people in the area to gain much needed guidance on their options when beginning on a career path. Too often young people are trapped by a lack of knowledge in this regard and this event aims to free their mind to the possibilities that they have before them. Any young person feeling anxious about the future can rest assured that they will learn from this event and leave feeling more confident about what lies ahead of them.”
