Peterborough’s Skills Vision sets out to help new talent prosper. We’re giving a voice to the city’s businesses, education providers and funders of education to find out what shape they want the city’s skills agenda to take.
Businesses are invited to sign up to the Vision and commit to:
• Actively encourage and support employees to gain skills and qualifications that help to meet the needs of your business, as well as assisting their future employability.
• Raise your employees’ skills and competencies to improve your business performance by investing in economically valuable training.
• Engage with Opportunity Peterborough through an annual survey to share information on your existing and future skills requirements.
• Be positive about Peterborough’s young people contributing to the workplace and be receptive to the concept of helping them to make the transition from education to employment.
In return, we’ll support you to achieve this commitment by sharing regular updates about local and national skills, and pointing businesses in the right direction for available funding, expert advice, information on skills development opportunities and support from training providers.
