The Portsmouth College Enterprise Academy Roadshow
The Portsmouth College Enterprise Academy Roadshow is an exciting new enterprise roadshow that reaches five Portsmouth Secondary Schools each year. The roadshow hopes to inspire and motivate students to look at enterprise as a real career path and highlight the city’s commitment to supporting students to be innovative and enterprising through short events provided by the college.
Each school ‘roadshow’ will last one entire school day with two short events back to back, with one group of students in the morning and another group of students in the afternoon.
Each roadshow event is staffed by the Unloc Enterprise Academy and Portsmouth College team, with the support of ex-students that act as role models and ambassadors. The roadshow is also heavily subsidised and as such, places are limited and sought after.
