What we do for business
You could make a real and lasting change to the lives of many young people whilst benefiting your own business. By brokering the partnership we make it easy for you to engage with education.
Skillstree is an important initiative for Basingstoke and Deane and the surrounding areas. All companies are encouraged to get involved - both large and small.
Launched in 2012, Skillstree has helped over 1000's of young people. Each year, with your support, we are growing our sustainable programme to ensure young people are developing the skills businesses are looking for.
Supported by positive role models from the world of work, the initiative includes practical ‘employability’ workshops, challenges, talks, conferences and visits.
Your company can be a part of inspiring the next generation by allowing your staff to support with a one-off morning, afternoon or day at the local school.
The skills gained from employer led interactions are invaluable to young people as well as your employees.
From our experience students engage more with businesses and professionals, seeing them as a real link to work, which is why employer led interactions have such successful outcomes.
Staff also benefit by developing a range of skills which is more cost effective than a training course and will benefit your business in return.

Research shows that young people rule out career options from a young age. Our interactive careers fairs are one of the ways to inspire a large number of students into your industry.
It is important that young people are inspired by businesses into different careers to allow them to make informed decisions about options.
By showcasing your industry and company at a careers fair you are helping young people to make informed choices about their future options, courses they will choose, career paths they will take and skills they will learn.
It is free to exhibit at our large events.
