Higher skills event

As part of our series of careers events Bassetlaw District Council and the Bridge Skills Hub are pleased to announce the first Higher Skills and Education event at The Bridge - Skills Hub. Worksop's new £3.5m state-of-the art education hub.

As a district we want to ensure all our residents and employers have robust information about the rapidly changing world of work and the skills needed in a changing economy. Higher skills will play an increasing important role in a new mechanised world integrating emerging and disruptive technologies.    The Higher skills event forms part of our response to provide local, employer lead higher education (HE) and higher skills.  We welcome all Bassetlaw businesses to engage in this event and join the discussion.
