We warmly invite you to attend the next event in our Community Champions series. Our theme this time is Employability and will cover work experience, apprenticeships, internships and local recruitment.
Community Champions is a unique programme of networking events, offering charities and community groups across Camden and Islington the chance to make important and lasting connections with Knowledge Quarter partners, such as the British Museum, UCL, Google, the Francis Crick Institute, Conway Hall, The Place and many others.
Whether you work for a charity helping people get back into work or you are looking for new local partners for an internship programme, the assets and resources of the Knowledge Quarter are at your disposal, ensuring you will leave this session with something valuable; a new connection, the beginnings of a collaboration, a new way of thinking about Employability. For Knowledge Quarter partners, too, the event presents a fantastic opportunity to work more closely with a diverse range of local organisations and learn from their expertise and local knowledge on the subject of Employability.
This is a free event, however places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
Local Community Organisations and Charities
We would like to invite local community organisations and charities with a focus on youth or projects that relate to youth to set up marketplace stalls at the event. This will require arriving at 14:00 to set up a your stall. Please note we will be limited to a maximum eight stalls, and these will be selected through an expression of interest process. You are still encouraged to attend the event even if you have not been selected for a stall. Please fill out the expression of interest form here.
Knowledge Quarter Partners
We would like Knowledge Quarter partners to consider what skills and activities they can offer to our local organisations and charities, and bring along a clear idea of how best to engage. We will have a space for noticeboards to be placed which festival organisers to view, ensuring that no conversation or opportunity is missed.
To apply for a marketplace stall: Please download and submit the expression of interest form which can be found here. The deadline for submission is 5pm, 26 November 2018.
General notice: Whilst some of the organisations might be responsible for grant funding in different departments, this event is focusing on activities and skills that Knowledge Quarter partners can offer.
