Priestley College is backing a survey to assess employability and skills in Warrington.
The survey looks to identify current skills, job market trends, future employment opportunities and what people look for when applying for a job.
It is being run by Warrington’s Skills Commission and can be completed by anyone in the borough.
“This survey is going to be an important tool in assessing the needs of both local employers and those seeing work in the area,” said Mark Eccleston, Assistant Principal at Priestley College.
“As a college we have many strong employer partnerships and this means we are acutely aware of their needs and at the same time we are equipping young people with the skills they require to succeed in the workplace.
“It makes sense for us to be supporting this survey and we hope as many people take part as possible so that together we can have a positive impact on the borough’s future.”
The Warrington Skills Commission aims to ensure local people have the skills employers want and need.
Based on the survey and other evidence collected, the commission will determine Warrington’s current position and challenges, identify areas for improvement and make recommendations for change. Their findings will be shared later this year.
The survey closes on Friday 7 April and takes up to 15 minutes to complete. Those who enter also have the opportunity to win a £100 voucher to spend at Warrington Market.
