New website provides access to local training and recruitment organisations

All businesses understand the importance of recruitment, training and linking with their local community – few businesses are aware of how much local help is available! Brighton & Hove Future Workforce is a new website that puts businesses in touch with organisations that can help with staff training and recruitment and developing their links with education and the community.

The site is designed for local employers and features organisations such as American Express, Integra Building and Brighton & Hove City Council to name but a few. The site is a great source of information presented in a user-friendly way that will help employers to access opportunities from organisations such as local schools, job centres, colleges, the Universities, apprenticeship training providers and community based organisations. Featured training programmes include Young Apprenticeships, Apprenticeships, Foundation Degrees, Knowledge Transfer Partnerships, New Deal, Business Action on Homelessness and many more.

Local businesses that have already tapped into this support are featured on the site offering testimonials about the benefits of their involvement.

Joe McNulty, Joint Managing Director of Integra Building stated that ‘Training has formed a key part of our business success; if employers don’t train their future workers we can’t complain when we have skills shortages which affect our performance. The Future Workforce website makes it easy to access local support, advice, training and development opportunities that will ensure we always have a supply of skilled labour coming through".

The site has been funded by the Learning and Skills Council via the Brighton & Hove Learning Partnership and created by The Sussex Council of Training Providers (SCTP) working with the Brighton & Hove Education Business Partnership.

Paul Mitchell, SCTP’s Future Workforce Project Manager reports that ‘The response to the site has already been very positive and with a high profile promotional campaign starting in October we hope that many more businesses will become actively involved in training & development – this site is the vehicle to help them’.
