Chesterfield Employability and Skills Campaign

The development of talent and a quality workforce is an area that is constantly raised by Chesterfield Champions and the wider Chesterfield business community.

Destination Chesterfield will continue to promote opportunities to businesses to encourage them to develop existing staff and attract new talent.

Destination Chesterfield has identified new and virtual ways to deliver skills and employability activity and after pitching the idea has worked with Chesterfield Borough Council and North Derbyshire Careers Hub to deliver a new MyFuture Virtual Careers Platform to showcase opportunities throughout covid and beyond.

The Made in Chesterfield initiative will continue in a virtual form in 2020, with a two-week festival in November and then reintroducing tours at an appropriate point in the future.

 The Apprentice Town initiative will be relaunched in the Autumn 2020 and Destination Chesterfield will continue to manage the website and social media activity as their contribution to the partnership.
