Recruiting and retaining talent are top priorities for business, which means that tackling the skills gap and securing a talent pipeline is critical for future success.
But whose job is it to ensure that universities are producing work-ready graduates and that schools and colleges are encouraging apprenticeships?
Last year the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority launched a ‘Skills Commission’ to come up with innovative ways of preparing young people for modern employment.
Meanwhile, national apprenticeship provider Progress to Excellence has been providing training and assessment for organisations of all shapes and sizes for more than 20 years.
BusinessCloud has teamed up with the group to explore how Liverpool City Region can support the business sector’s skills needs.
Their ‘Mind the Skills Gap’ breakfast event will provide a unique opportunity for budget holders and decision-makers in business to hear about Liverpool City Region’s Skills Strategy and the positive influence apprentices can have on their businesses.
They’ll also be looking at the way professional services companies have changed their approach to recruitment to attract a bigger talent pool and the importance of upskilling employees through the utilisation of the levy to meet the challenges of modern businesses.
