A GREAT turnout of around 100 of our partners gathered together earlier this week for our Growing Skills Growing Our Economy event.
With so many people there, we were delighted to be able to share our successes and recognise contributions from partners and skills providers who help to deliver our work.
The event gave us the opportunity to begin our conversation about how to position our area to succeed in the changing skills environment.
Head of Skills Annabel Jelley said:
"Our skills event yesterday was a real success. There was a tangible sense of celebration in the room when we showcased all the skills achievements, projects and initiatives from the last year or so. It really highlighted what great progress we are making towards our goals and also gave a great opportunity to plan our approach for the Industrial Strategy.’
Head of Careers Jill Locke from Ripon Grammar school who has been very successful working with us on our Careers and Enterprise project, and who attended the event said: "It was an extremely well organised and informative day with many networking opportunities."
