Basingstoke Consortium is a charity and has been established in the town for 30 years. We promote and organise a wide range of practical opportunities for local young people to experience the world of work.

We work with all local secondary schools and academies, Test Valley, Court Moor and Fernhill as well as Basingstoke College of Technology, Queen Mary’s College, Peter Symonds and the local Pupil Referral Units. We also engage with a large number of infant and junior schools.

Our community links range from multinational companies like Visa Europe and Unum to smaller local businesses, organisations and charities like Wote Street People and Allens Garage.

Our aim is to give young people an introduction to the world of work, to motivate, inform, raise self-confidence and develop skills for adult life. We do this through programmes based on business engagement: visits, talks, challenges, work experience and mentoring. All are designed to broaden awareness, answer questions and stimulate debate. We ensure that the appropriate health and safety checks have been done for all of our programmes.

Each year we work with thousands of young people. This is made possible through our strong links with business and the wider community: last year businesses volunteered a staggering 25,000 hours of time to our projects.

Students tell us how business engagement inspires them and raises their aspirations, whilst helping them to make better choices and to focus on their classwork and future career path. 

If you have a question or would like to get involved in any of the programmes we deliver, please call 01256 840710 or email info@bas-consort.org.uk for further details.

If you have a query regarding your child's work experience placement or you work for a local company that would like to offer work experience, please contact 01256 840710 or email info@bas-consort.org.uk for further details.
