Groups from across the city came together at Brighton MET to discuss important education and skills issues.
The Adult Learning and Skills Partnership meeting, held in The Gallery Restaurant at the college’s Central Brighton Campus last week, included people from Brighton and Hove Council, the Brighton Hove Economic Partnership, Partnership Regeneration Development Ltd, and our very own principal Paul Riley.
With a focus on celebrating the achievements of the current ‘City Employment and Skills Plan’, the meeting also looked ahead to the priorities and desired outcomes for both the new Economic Strategy and Employment and Skills Plan.
The Partnership Regeneration Development Ltd, who are working with the council on the new Economic Strategy, were in attendance. The Director of the Institute for Employment Studies, Tony Wilson, was also present and shared data and policy insights to set the local and national context and inform discussions.
Following the meeting, attendees were given a tour of the campus, to gain further insight into the college as a whole.
