The Somerset Education Business Partnership (EBP) is inviting employers to attend its official launch event on Wednesday 24th October 2018 – to find out how they can benefit from getting involved and to network with local schools, colleges and work-related learning providers.

The free event, being held at The Canalside, nr Bridgwater, from 5-7pm, will include guest speakers and some facilitated discussion on improving the connections between business, schools and colleges and opening up ways to engage young people in Somerset businesses.

Chris Langdon, Interim CEO of Somerset Chamber and a member of the Somerset EBP’s operational management group, comments:

“The Somerset EBP is an exciting opportunity for business-education relationships. Collaboration with local schools and colleges is critical for fostering a future skilled workforce. I look forward to seeing employers from a range of sectors at the launch.”

Attendees will learn first-hand about the EBP’s services and how employers can contribute to developing a talented workforce in Somerset. The partnership plans to unveil their new website featuring a directory of engagement opportunities for employers, and showcase EBP branded materials, designed by Chamber member, The Design Hive.

An introduction to the partnership’s aims and services will be followed by a break-out session, enabling businesses and education providers to explore engagement challenges, as well as discuss possible solutions and local school-collaboration opportunities.
