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

"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"

Bruce Millington, Manager
(Sutton Winson Ltd)

"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."

Wendy Agate, Community Fund Raising Manager
(St Peter & St James Hospice)

"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""

Peter Hook, Manager
(Computer Systems Engineers)

"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)
