Next Generation Careers: 2018 Review

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 are running two events at the end of March to present an overview of our collated findings with you, share up-to-date information and latest results from our 2018 business skills and training survey.
