Branch Event

IoD Lancashire - How to prepare our children and businesses for the looming skills shortage.

17 Jul 2019
Victoria Mill , Burnley

Every business needs to consider the implications of a shrinking skills pool and the real risk it carries for their future stability or growth.

In order to mitigate this risk every pupil should have multiple opportunities to learn from employers about work, employment and the skills that are valued in the workplace. This can be through a range of enrichment activities for pupils such as visiting speakers, mentoring work visits, work shadowing to help their exploration of career opportunities, and expand their networks.

IoD Lancashire and Shout! have teamed up with The Careers and Enterprise Company and the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership to organise this briefing event for individuals and businesses on the initiative.
