‘What Next?’ in North Notts encompasses the new education, skills and employment activity of the North Notts Skills and Employment Board (NNSEB), Skills and Employment Partnership (NNSEP) and the North Notts Careers Hub. What Next aims to support skills, careers and employment activity across North Notts, shaping the future workforce and helping provide a potential talent pipeline for local businesses and enabling people to make informed decisions.
We aspire to connect the districts employers with education providers and stakeholders to help raise aspiration, create awareness and bring careers to life. A two day event is being held in October 2023, supported by key employers and training / education provider from across North Notts showcasing a range of career opportunities including Apprenticeships, work experience, Study Programmes, T Levels, A Levels and Higher Education options.
Events are organised by Bassetlaw District Council via a key partnership approach with the North Notts BID (Business Improvement District), the North Notts Careers Hub and with the support of our districts employers and key stakeholders.
