TechResort wants to join the dots between local employers, educators and government. Working together we can grow Eastbourne’s knowledge economy more quickly.
Last Monday we invited several Eastbourne creative and tech businesses to sit down with Sussex Downs College, the largest further education provider in the area. The college already meets different sectors across Eastbourne and we were delighted to help them talk with ours.
This first ‘TR chat’ builds on the skills survey work we started last year. We wanted to know about the skills needed by local firms to thrive and how that fits with current and future college training. There’s a lot of good happening, but there’s always plenty more we can do. Watch this space for details.
There’s lots of people who made this happen so three cheers to you all.
