About The Big Futures Show

The BIG Futures Show is organised by Eastbourne Education Business Partnership in association with Eastbourne Borough Council and East Sussex College. Eastbourne EBP is a registered charity consisting of a board and representatives from local schools, colleges and businesses and has successfully been delivering work-related learning activities for students in the local area for the past 30 years. Over a number of years, many East Sussex schools have organised their own careers fairs to which local colleges, training providers and businesses have been invited. Whilst these have been valued, such events can take a considerable amount of time to plan and deliver for each school, and some employers have said that they do not have the capacity to attend them all. It seemed sensible to consolidate all the effort made by schools into just one annual high profile and sustainable event, which would be large enough to cater for a much broader range of career interests across all sectors. The Big Futures Show supports the Government’s careers strategy and underpinning the Gatsby Benchmarks. Eastbourne Education Business Partnership Ltd is Registered in England, Company Registration Number: 7625660, Registered Charity Number: 1149634
