Project Description

WORKS is a Bristol Learning City collaboration between employers, learning providers and communities to develop a skilled local workforce. The intention for the first phase of WORKS is to focus on the digital, high-tech and creative media companies setting up in the zone, as well as construction companies involved in site builds.

Building on existing good practice, WORKS will:

  • Engage – Employers and learning providers will create opportunities to equip people with the skills and qualities needed in the workplace
  • Inspire – People will participate, developing awareness of the wide range of career options available
  • Employ – Employers will recruit skilled individuals, who are ready to meet business needs.

WORKS will champion and facilitate:

  • The many ways to experience work
  • Mentoring for employability
  • Opportunities to share good practice
  • Networking activities
  • An online employability Portfolio (formerly the PEBL).
