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

Taking place in Portsmouth, Southampton, and Bournemouth, the events will provide students with the opportunity to gain a hands-on, interactive experience with either a local creative and digital or engineering and manufacturing employer 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 – 14:00 and schools can sign up for one of the following dates:

Tuesday 14 June – university of Portsmouth – FULLY BOOKED

WEDNESDAY 15 JUNE – UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHAMPTON – FULLY BOOKED

Wednesday 22 June – Bournemouth university
– FULLY BOOKED

The opportunity is open to Year 9 and 10 students* to support their participation/knowledge of the creative and digital or engineering and manufacturing industries. Students do not have to be studying/wanting to study a related subject at GCSE or beyond in order to attend.

This event will be completely free of charge. There is also the potential for SUN to support with travel costs – if required, please add those details to the relevant section of the booking form.

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).
