Business figures gather at last year's business showcase event, which will this year form part of the 21 Days campaign.

BUSINESSES, education providers and community groups will be brought together for a 21-day celebration of enterprise and employability next month – and the Herald & Gazette will be there every step of the way.

The campaign will bring together a series of events, workshops and talks, aimed at encouraging and promoting all things to do with enterprise and employability.

It kicks off on March 3, with the Herald & Gazette featuring weekly updates on what has been going on across the area.

Highlights include a jobs fair hosted by East Worthing and Shoreham MP Tim Loughton, a Business Showcase event and a roadshow to support new start-up companies.

Tina Tilley, chief executive of the Worthing and Adur Chamber of Commerce, said: “21 Days is a new initiative to encourage and promote apprenticeships, community interaction and voluntary groups and business support, culminating in a showcase of the successes of the area.

“There is a number of events being hosted and it is an excellent opportunity to celebrate businesses and organisations, raising awareness and providing support at the same time.”

The campaign begins with National Apprenticeships Week, with activities led by Northbrook College.

Students at the college will be launching a new radio service, as well as an apprenticeship information session, focussing on 21 new vacancies.

The Broadwater campus, in Broadwater Road, Worthing, will also host a careers fair on Saturday, March 8.

Business development manager Anne Feldberg said: “The 21 Days campaign provides a fantastic opportunity for Northbrook College to support both businesses and individuals to realise their goals and ambitions.

“By bringing together the partners, this full and exciting programme of opportunities will further demonstrate the impact and dynamics of local organisations working together.”
