Skills breakfast meeting for local businesses on 24th November
One way for businesses to tackle skills shortages is to recruit school and college leavers. Businesses can save around £5,000 each time they recruit a school or college leaver directly (Source: ACAS report 2015). More than a thousand 16-18 year olds leave Warwickshire schools and colleges every year. More and more ‘A’ level students are choosing to go into work with continuing training and development rather than go to university.
Warwickshire County Council and Warwick District Council are pleased to invite you to a breakfast meeting with the Headteachers of local secondary schools on 24th November 8 – 9.30a.m. at the Episode Hotel, Leamington Spa, CV32 4JL.
The purpose of the meeting is to enable businesses and schools to discuss their skills challenges and form new relationships. This may lead to joint-working to develop the employability skills of students.
Mr Jassa Panessar, Headteacher of Campion School will talk about the importance of the school’s work with businesses. National Grid and Warwick Castle have confirmed they will attend and speak about the benefits they gain from working with schools and colleges.
