Oldham College | Employer Events 2023/24

OLDHAM College is launching the next series of its popular events helping employers to network, gain insight and access support to grow their business.

The FE/HE college is opening its doors across the new academic year to all local and regional employers: from micro-businesses to SME’s and large businesses alike.

Each event offers a range of free opportunities, information and advice on topics relating to the future of work.

Attendees enjoy breakfast and informal networking from 8-9am at each session before examining a significant issue relevant to employers in all sectors in the final hour.

This year’s line-up* covers topics such as how to upskill or reskill existing workforces, preparing for the digital world, and managing sustainability to transition your business to net zero.

The sessions are led by expert staff and guest speakers and include a ‘question and answer’ discussion.

Simon Jordan, Oldham College Principal and Chief Executive, said:

“Our employer events are a great opportunity to make new contacts and get free insight and perspectives on issues that are vital to growth.”

“The prosperity and sustainability of local employers is central to everything we do here for the future of our learners, which is why we’re working hard to make our campus a focal point where people can exchange ideas, information and experiences.

“These events are also a chance to see our facilities and learn about the range of services we offer that can help your recruitment plans to fill skills gaps and plan ahead.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming businesses of all shapes and sizes to campus this year, so please visit our website to register your free place now.”
