News: Coast to Capital Workshops

Posted on 12th June 2019

Skills and Labour Market Research Project

The Skills and Labour Market Research Project is an exciting opportunity for the Coast to Capital area to gain valuable intelligence and build an evidence base report on the current and future demand for and supply of skills within the local area. This research will feed into and support the development of the ‘people’ section of the Coast to Capital Local Industrial Strategy, as well as the work towards the Gatwick 360˚ priority to Create Skills for the Future.

The first stage of the project is now taking place and an initial desk based research analysis is being conducted. We will be holding a series of research workshops in July 2019 which we would like to invite senior stakeholders to attend, to discuss the data and collect qualitative feedback to supplement the data in the final report.

The workshops will be geographically focused and locations have been chosen across the LEP area. Please register to attend the workshop that is most geographically relevant to you.

The dates, timings and locations will be as follows:

Testimonials

"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."

The Hon Nicholas Soames MP

""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""

Dave Farmer, German Translator

"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "

Steve Cridland, CEO
(Burgess Hill Town Council)

"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
