      EVENT DETAILS
      Nurturing Talent - Darlington

      A Unique event for businesses, enabling them to experience the college environment and debate key issues relating to developing the workforce of the future.


      Investing in the future workforce and the young talent therein is becoming a key driver in recruitment and development plans throughout industry. In order to develop young people with the skills and talent required to maintain the high standard expected in British industry, it is essential to understand how education and industry can work together.

      The Nurturing Talent hosted by NYBEP at Darlington College will allow employers an insight into the responsibility and potential for employers to develop young talent, as well as the viewpoint of a leading College in the North East of England.

      Throughout the event, delegates will be provided with insights to how employers can strive to nurture the talent abundant in young people that will ultimately benefit the development of a future workforce.

      The speakers at the event will include:

      Tim Grant, Principal and CEO at Darlington College will provide an insight into the ethos held at the college for developing young talent and how engaging employers to support all aspects of the curriculum support widening opportunities and nurturing their young people.

      Sue Gradwell, CEO of NYBEP will brief delegates on how NYBEP as a leading Education Business Partnership is helping to shape the future workforce and the role of schools and colleges and how employers can support these developments.

      John Millichap, NECC Head of Skills Development and The National Apprenticeship Service will also be in attendance and will form part of the Q&A Panel following the main speakers. The Panel discussion will allow delegates to raise any questions and will provide a unique opportunity for employers and educators to discuss the future development of talent programmes.

      The event will be held at Darlington College which holds an Outstanding grading by Ofsted and provides their young people with an unparalleled learning environment. Delegates will receive an opportunity to tour the facilities and observe how the teaching staff are embracing links to industry to develop their students further.
