Chesterfield & North Derbyshire Employability & Skills Conference

Meet local businesses and education providers at the third Chesterfield & North Derbyshire Employability & Skills Conference.

With more than 14,000 students in North Derbyshire set to gain their GCSE and A Level qualifications over the next five years, the Chesterfield and North Derbyshire Employability and Skills Conference aims to strengthen links between education providers and local businesses to ensure school leavers are work ready.

The conference is an opportunity for employers and education providers to develop solutions together that will ensure young people leaving education have both the skills employers in the area require and are also aware of the employment opportunities available to them.

Organisers are delighted to welcome Brendan Kelly, Managing Director of Heathcotes Group to this event to reveal more about its award winning apprenticeship programme and the importance of embedding apprenticeship and skills initiatives into workforce development strategies to facilitate business growth.

Speakers will also include Capgemini, Brookfield School and St. Marys Roman Catholic High School.

The Chesterfield & North Derbyshire Employability & Skills Conference is organised by Chesterfield Borough Council, Gail Widerman of Placing Futures, D2N2 Enterprise Advisor Network and Destination Chesterfield.
