ABC June Networking

June 26, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

This is the second event within the new ABC series, for a better connected Banbury aimed at bringing business and educators together.

A T Level briefing hosted by Activate Learning in association with Banbury Chamber of Commerce and the Education and Skills Funding Agency.

Continuing falls in unemployment levels, advances in technology, Brexit uncertainty and potential limitations on migrant workers could impact negatively on an already widening Oxfordshire skills gap.

Now, more than ever, it is essential that education providers work with business to develop the skills and attributes that young people need to succeed in the workplace.

Engaging with education is a long-term investment strategy, but one which will result in the talent pipeline needed by Oxfordshire business to sustain growth.

And by working with training providers, companies can co-create the curricula, build the skills and inspire the innovation that will help Banbury to continue to thrive.

At the event you will learn:

  • More on the benefits of engaging with local education providers
  • How industry placements benefit your business
  • What you need to know about the new T Levels
  • How, together, we can develop a talent pipeline to sustain growth

Guest Speakers:

Laura Asbridge, Career Pathways Director Activate Learning

Boyd Hatwood, ESFA

Networking, tea and coffee and a light lunch will be provided by Banbury & Bicester College’s Cherwell Restaurant.

You also have the opportunity to promote your business by displaying your pull-up banner during the event.
