Are your business’ skills working in harmony?

About the event

Businesses across the region are invited to attend a free breakfast networking event to hear from the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) and apprenticeship opportunities available at Barnsley College.

The informal event takes place on Tuesday 3 July, 8.00am to 10.00am at Barnsley College, Church Street, Barnsley, S70 2YW (Sat nav S70 2AX).

Attendees will hear from John Cope, Head of Education and Skills at the CBI, who will talk about the work the CBI has completed on the ‘Perfect Harmony Report’ and the value this provides for businesses, students and training providers.

Suzan McGladdery, Director of Business Development at Barnsley College, will provide an apprenticeship update. This will include information about funding reforms, new apprenticeship standards and how employers can benefit from recruiting an apprentice or up-skilling their existing workforce through an apprenticeship.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to have a tour of the College’s facilities and network with other businesses.

Places are limited, so businesses are being encouraged to book early via Eventbrite. Alternatively, employers can reserve a place by contacting the Marketing Team by calling 01226 216 833 or emailing
