Employers from across the region are being invited by City of Wolverhampton College to join an advisory board to help develop training programmes for the workforce of the future.
The college is hosting a networking breakfast event, on Friday 14 October, to give employers the chance to talk to staff about the skills and knowledge their businesses need and the qualities they look for when recruiting new staff.
Feedback will enable tutors to adapt their learning programmes to ensure students gain the skills employers require and put them ahead of the competition when applying for jobs in their chosen sector.
The free event, at the college’s Wellington Road campus in Bilston, is open to all employers and, after breakfast, attendees will be able to talk to curriculum staff in their industry area and have a tour of relevant training facilities.
The breakfast event will run from 8.15am to 10.30am and places can be booked at: www.wolvcoll.ac.uk/event/employer-advisory-board-breakfast-event/
