Careers & Apprenticeship Show

Book your stand with us...

Dorset Chamber is delighted to be supporting this premier career event, showcasing the very best
that Dorset has to offer related to careers and apprenticeships.

This unique event enables employers to engage with students across all schools in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole aged 15-19 who are investing in their future careers. This offers businesses the opportunity to showcase both their business and their sector, and importantly, engage with future possible apprentices. This is a great opportunity when the number of apprenticeship opportunities exceeds the number of apprentices.

The show will offer the opportunity to engage with teachers, parents and carers as well as students at one single large event. You’ll also be able to network and meet with other businesses attending. The hall will be arranged to allow maximum exposure to all sector areas and this will provide a cross section of employers and sectors in each area to encourage maximum footfall. Please note we are unable to reserve individual slots.

This event is open to all employers who offer Level 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 apprenticeships.

Each stand will include:

  • A solid structure shell being an ishell aluminium system with white Foamex Infill Panels
  • Two lights per stand
  • Board with the name of your company on
  • A table and two chairs for exhibitors (more can be provided at an extra charge)
  • A complimentary pack of bottled water, event details and lanyards for exhibitors
  • Access to tea and coffee throughout the day (vouchers provided)
  • Free access to Wi-Fi (5Mbps).
  • Midday lunch
