An event aimed at providing local businesses with information they need to reskill their workforce will take place at the end of the month.

West Herts College, in partnership with Hemel Hempstead Business Ambassadors, is hosting ‘Reskill to Rebuild’ on March 26; a virtual event to help businesses decode the skills and training incentives in the Chancellor’s new budget.

The event is designed to provide local businesses with bespoke advice on how they can make the most of new opportunities for re-training and upskilling. As well as discussions around rapidly reskilling current staff and influencing the skills and training of future employees, there will also be a chance for businesses to receive one-to-one guidance on how they can benefit from the College’s offer and the Government’s latest skills and training incentives.
