We know that employers want to recruit young people with good employability skills who can demonstrate some experience of working in a real-life environment. We also know that young people benefit from being given the chance to help out, so that they gain skills and can try out some careers that might inspire them.
We are looking for businesses in Northamptonshire to offer work experience placements of around five days to our students during college term times.
Influence local skills delivery
We want Northamptonshire businesses to shape future skills training delivery.
The UK Commission for Employment and Skills has identified that businesses are trying to fill general skills gaps in important areas such as maths and English, communications, social skills and problem solving. We can help local organisations address these issues. But we are also keen to challenge businesses to tell us what else they need in terms of training or upskilling their workforce.
Our flexibility means we are ideally-placed to respond to the needs of businesses so we are looking for companies to tell us what types of training and which skills they want us to deliver.
The Business Centre is here for you and we are standing by to hear what we can do that will help make an impact on your business.
