About this Event

Join us!

As a business, you can gain huge benefits from engaging with a college or sixth form centre involved in the North East LEP College Hub – from recruiting young people through to shaping the knowledge and understanding of your future workforce

The Post-16 education landscape has undergone significant change recently. You are invited to a North East LEP insight session focused on identifying business opportunities to support the Post-16 education offer and how your business can benefit in doing so.

With over 70,000 learners enrolled in Post-16 education, of which an incredible 25,000 are on 16-19 study programmes in the North East LEP area, you cannot afford to miss this session.

The North East LEP College Hub brings together nine further education colleges and two of the largest sixth form centres in the North East LEP area.
