Bedfordshire businesses set to inspire with Your Future events

12 October 2015

Businesses in Bedfordshire are invited to get involved with a government funded project designed to inspire, enthuse and motivate young people to think about career options and how to make the most of their remaining time in education.

Bedfordshire Chamber is hosting two events as part of the Your Future project and local businesses are invited to exhibit and promote themselves to young people aged 14 to 25.

The two events, which run from 9am to 4pm, are on 19th November 2015 at Kings House, Bedford and 25th February 2016 at UK Centre for Carnival Arts, Luton.

Businesses are encouraged to bring along a ‘Have a Go’ memorable and interactive activity for the young people to get involved in. If you already have a young person working in your organisation, bring them along as well -nothing inspires more than speaking to someone near their own age.

The chamber expects at least 700 young people to attend each event.

Please pledge your commitment to this event by emailing

The Chambers of Commerce network, which covers the whole of the country, will run 250 career events, bringing together thousands of pupils, businesses, schools, colleges and training providers in order to address this issue and improve young people’s prospects for a successful career. 

The ‘Your Future’ programme of career events, supported by the Skills Funding Agency, will give 70,000 young people access to potential employers, showcase the range of career options open to them, and help them to plan their future to take advantage of these opportunities. It will also give businesses the platform to meet the employees of tomorrow and to talk about the skills and qualities they look for when recruiting.
