Through its many programmes, employers can help raise the aspirations of young people and are able to be directly involved in initiatives which encourage young people to develop key skills required for the world of work. Andrew Weston, the centre manager at Gosport Business Centre is a registered Business Ambassador with EBP and earlier this year hosted a challenge event at the business centre that saw students tasked with developing new marketing and advertising campaigns for the centre using strict branding guidelines. He said, ‘I really enjoy my work with the EBP, the students never fail to amaze me with their ideas and their fresh approach to how a brand can be utilised. Gosport Business Centre have also recently linked up with Fareham College and the students there who are currently studying on the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy course and all of them are now Basepoint Card members giving them access to Basepoint Business Centres throughout the country. As they progress through the course, they will also be receiving Virtual Office licences for the businesses they develop.
