Building business skills

Skills Development Scotland (SDS), the national body tasked with supporting the enhancement of skills within Scottish businesses, is to hold a ‘networking session’ in Ayrshire.

The event - Discover How Skills Can Work for Your Business – will be held at the Park Hotel in Kilmarnock on Monday, March 17th from 8:00am until mid-day. An SDS spokesperson explained, “It takes a lot of hard work and determination to build a business but there is a range of support to help you on your way. This free networking session will give you a chance to mix with other local businesses as well as hear about what local and national public sector support is available.

“There is lots of funding on offer to help you recruit the right people, develop your existing workforce and plan for the future. This is the perfect day out to help your business grow – can you afford not to be there?”

The day starts with breakfast, followed by a presentation from the Local Employer Engagement Forum, detailing local support available to employers. There will also be presentations from Business Gateway, City & Guilds, Ayrshire College and the Employer Support Executive.

Further information on the event is available here or by calling Skills Development Scotland on 0800 783 6000.
