Future Skills - Creative Roundtable
Developing a skilled future workforce is important for the creative and digital sector. This begins during education and it’s now more important than ever that we prepare young people for the realities of what the creative and digital sector really needs in a new or junior employee.
Working together with Bath College and Creative Bath, we’d like to invite you to join us at a breakfast meeting on Tuesday April 17, to share your insights as a leading industry expert in this field.
The aims of this breakfast will be to discover:
- What skills an intern, placement student or new employee need to have in order for them to benefit your business?
- What does being work-ready mean to your business? Work-readiness might mean hard skills (like coding) or core skills (being motivated/great on the phone)
- What do education facilities need to be teaching in order to develop competent, work-ready students?
- What would be your reservations about taking on a student for a work experience placement?
Tell us what you need, and we’ll aim to combat any concerns or reservations by working with students – through workshops, longer term projects and potentially even a work-readiness module to better prepare them for life after education.
We’ll also be feeding back on the Skills West survey which looked into these issues and discuss how the findings can help inform next steps.
Help us shape the future of skills of the region!
Please note: This event is for West of England (Bristol, Bath & North East Somerset, South Gloucestershire & North Somerset) organisations only. Places are limited. We may only be able to offer one place per organisation/training provider.
