Enterprise M3 Skills Conference: 10th September 2013

Skills Conference - 10 Sept - updated versionEnterprise M3 LEP

World Class Skills: Developing a world class workforce

The Enterprise M3 area benefits from highly skilled residents, with 39.5% of residents educated to NVQ Level 4 or above, compared to a South East average of 36%. However, our businesses tell us that they face challenges in recruiting people with the right skills, at the right time, and this poses a risk to the competitiveness of our economy.

With this in mind, the Enterprise M3 Local Enterprise Partnership, working with employers, learners and learning providers, is currently developing a Skills Strategy and a set of actions that will help ensure that we have a workforce that is fit for the future.

 

Have your say on the future skills system in the Enterprise M3 area.

You are invited to a FREE half-day event on 10 September to have your say on the draft Strategy.

Event highlights include:
Maggie Philbin will be talking about her work in radio and television on a wide range of science, medical and technology programmes.
Maggie Philbin is co-founder and CEO of TeenTech CIC, an award winning organisation helping young people, their parents and teachers understand more about the real opportunities in Science and Technology.
Barney Ely, Director at Hays Human Resources will be giving insights into the hopes, views and workplace aspirations of Generation Y.
• A presentation on the LEP’s current thinking on the key strategic actions needed to create a world class workforce.
• An interactive session that will give you an opportunity give your input on the Strategy. This is your chance to shape the work that is being done and ensure that the actions within the Strategy will help your business get the workforce it needs to prosper and grow.
