Skills Events

Skills West workshops

Bringing business and training providers together to help build a sustainable and more resilient workforce in the West of England.

Join us at our skills events so we can understand and advise on your skills challenges, connect you with education providers to facilitate training in your workforce, and get you thinking about developing the skills of people in your business.


Future Skills Workshops

Have your say about the future of skills in your sector and hear from guest speakers on valuable skills topics. We run regular events throughout the year aimed at different sectors so you should be able to find a topic relevant to your business. 

We are currently putting dates in the diary for future events - watch this space!


Next Generation Careers: 2017 Review - The Future of Employment and Skills

In partnership with the West of England LEP, Business West, through our Skills West Programme, has been working with businesses in the region to understand the skills and training needs across all sectors now, and for the next generation.

We have run a series of events to present an overview of our collated findings with you and show where we are going next. We shared up-to-date information with individuals and helped shape their organisation's future thinking and planning over the next year.

You can download a copy of the presentation from our last event at Weston College here. Keep an eye out for the next series of events later this year. 

 

 

 

 


Skills Advice Clinics 

Our Skills Advice Clinics are run regularly and give businesses the chance to come and chat one to one with a Business Skills Adviser. They can help identify skills gaps within your business and connect you with local and national training providers to ensure you get the most relevant, quality training.

We have several dates planned within Bristol, Bath and Somerset throughout May, June and July. See which one suits you best and book your space below!
