CBI: Education & Skills Conference - Feedback from Cherry Swayne

posted: 2014-11-19
Cherry Swayne, Head of Cambridge, yesterday attended the CBI Education and Skills Conference in her role as Regional Director for the REC.
The conference topics were surrounding businesses working closely with schools to improve employability and apprenticeship schemes. Cherry returned from the conference with some interesting statistics as to the current liaisons between schools and businesses, the behaviour on both sides and how, with some nurturing on the subject, this can be greatly improved upon.
Cherry has kindly collated the thoughts raised and statistics – it really does make for an interesting read as to how, as a business, we can work closer with the schools across our area and may reap some of the rewards of the next generations’ skills if we do so.
