FESTIVAL OF INDUSTRIES

DON’T MISS OUT ON THE RETURN OF THE SUN FESTIVAL OF INDUSTRIES!

Taking place across the SUN region, the events will provide students with the opportunity to gain a hands-on, interactive experience with local employers for the day.

Employers will task the students with a practical brief, reflecting the work within their businesses and the opportunities available to young people.

The events will take place from 09:30 – 14:30 and schools can currently sign up for the following:

WEDNESDAY 7 DECEMBER – ARTS university BOURNEMOUTH – Sold Out
WEDNESDAY 18 JANUARY – UNIVERSITY OF WINCHESTER

Further Spring and Summer dates/locations to follow

The opportunity is open to Year 10 students* to support their participation/knowledge of different industries. The event at Arts University Bournemouth will feature specifically creative and digital employers but all other events will offer a mix.

This event will be completely free of charge. There is also the potential for the SUN to support with travel costs – if required, please add those details to the relevant section of the booking form. Please note that lunch will not be provided; please ensure students bring a packed lunch with them.

Please note that places are limited and completing the booking form does not confirm your place. We will respond to your application as soon as possible to let you know if it has been successful.

*As an OFS funded programme with specific aims to support Uni Connect (UC) learners and their progression, we would like as many learners as possible attending to be Uni Connect (those young people living in an UC ‘target ward’, identified by your SPoC Activity reports. Please contact sun@soton.ac.uk if you require assistance identifying students).
