Council forms partnership to tackle workplace skills shortage

A CONFERENCE recently addressed how to tackle a skills shortage in the workplace.

Warwickshire County Council was joined by the Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership as well as members of local businesses, schools and colleges at the Skills for Employment Conference.

The council’s £2.4 million Skills for Employment programme provides opportunities and careers guidance to students and work experience placements between schools and businesses.

Council leader Izzi Seccombe said: “Our challenge is knowing what the jobs of tomorrow will entail in such a fast moving market.

“This conference is about aligning businesses and educators within this market so our young people get the education and competencies that will allow them to thrive.”
