Join us on Zoom as the Co-operative Party launches its report “Steps to Success: Lessons from Co-operatives in Education“.
Co-operative societies have throughout their history provided excellent training and apprenticeship opportunities for people of all different backgrounds. Education and training is at the heart of the co-operative business ethos – with co-operatives providing opportunities across the UK, often to people from the most disadvantaged backgrounds.
The Co-operative Party believes it is essential to take action to ensure adequate life-long learning and skills provision through high quality further education and apprenticeship. This event will share more information about co-operative successes in skills training and apprenticeship schemes and how we are calling for better support for initiatives such as these to ensure that local government and employers are future-proofing their business with skilled, knowledgeable and committed employees.
Speakers include Louise Timperley – Apprenticeship Manager at the Co-op, Cllr Kim Powell – Cabinet Member for Businesses, Jobs and Skills at Lewisham Council and others tbc.
This online event will be live captioned for greater accessibility.
