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'd now like to present an overview of our collated findings with you and show where we are going next. You'll gain up-to-date information to share with individuals and help shape your organisation's future thinking and planning over the next year.
We will present our 12 Local Sector Skills Statements and up-to-the-minute findings from our 2017 Business Skills and Training Survey. You'll hear from local employers and apprentices about how they work with training providers and gain advice for making it a successful partnership.
