It’s the last in a series of events staged by the college to “re-connect” with the local business community and forge partnerships with employers of all sizes, to aid the area’s regeneration and economic prosperity.
Louise Knott, vice-principal for communications, engagement and student experience, said: “We see this as an opportunity to re-connect with local employers and give them a voice in the college’s strategy moving forward. Mansfield and Ashfield have huge potential in terms of regeneration and economic prosperity – but in order to realise that potential, it’s vital that skills and training sit at the heart of it. This is about the college saying ‘we want to be part of this community’s future’ and work in partnership with employers to achieve that.”
Commenting on the event, Russell Jones, Chairman of Mansfield and Ashfield said, “2020 have always worked very closely with Vision West Nottinghamshire College as the College is a strategic and important part of the delivery of the future workforce into the Mansfield and Ashfield area. We would wholeheartedly recommend attendance at this event to learn and become involved in the creation of the correct skills base for our business community.”
