Join us and HS2 next Wednesday to learn about developing the next generation
A new panellist has been announced for our seminar next Wednesday on how your business can thrive by engaging with the future workforce.
Rebecca Young, Skills & Employment Supply Chain Manager at HS2 will be joining us at South & City College’s Longbridge campus from 11:30 – 13:30, to discuss how HS2 has tripled its investment into T-Levels and has moved 340 apprentices in the West Midlands into new roles.
Attendees will have the chance to sample contemporary dining styles from some of the region’s most promising young chefs at South & City College’s Karibunis Restaurant.
With more than 20% of the region’s population under 16, the West Midlands can massively benefit from equipping its young population with the correct skills.
Businesses can make a huge difference by helping to upskill the next generation, whilst boosting their own workforce with homegrown talent.
Research from the Education and Employers Taskforce shows that a young person who has four or more encounters with an employer is 86% less likely to be unemployed or not in education or training and can earn up to 22% more during their career.
Joining us to discuss this vital topic will be Rebecca Young, Skills & Employment Supply Chain Manager at HS2, Rebecca Waterfield, Director of Business Development at South & City College, and Dale Powell, Social Value Manager at Wates Construction Central.
