The Careers Cafe is Coming!


An UNBELIEVABLE OPPORTUNITY has arrived to the Spirit in Sport centre in Portsmouth.

We have teamed up with professional careers guidance volunteers to help sixteen to eighteen year olds explore their future career routes.

This means free access to:

  • Informal careers interviews
  • Insightful focus groups
  • Inspiring talks

We’ve been busy!

After a summer season of match-funding from PATCH (Portsmouth Action Team for Community Harmony), a new look by local interior designer Janine Smith, painting and decorating by volunteers, refurbishment by our Men’s Shed, and support from qualified careers advisers…

…We now need YOU!

Launch Night 

Before the Careers Cafe programme is in full swing, our LAUNCH NIGHT is being held this winter, offering guests with a tour of our facilities and presentations including:
  • ‘Post-16 Options in a Fast-Changing World’ (with Alan Bullock Careers)
  • The Careers Cafe: An introduction 
  • Spirit in Sport: Serving where the need is greatest – what’s next? 

Career routes are getting more complicated in this fast-changing world.

16-18 Tuesday Twilight  

Ensuring you or your child find the ‘right fit‘ from their post-16 options can be a complex task.

To help, we will be running our 16-18 Tuesday Twilight sessions (16:00-18:00) including interviews, focus groups, and talks for 16-18 year olds and parents.

Already know this is for you or your child? Please contact to express your interest, register, or for more information.
