Heart of Yorkshire Business and Tourism Forum


Thursday, 16 March, 2023

From 08:00am to 09:30am

Wakefield College


If you're a local and/or regional business interested in building a relationship with Wakefield, Castleford, or Selby Colleges come join us for our first Heart of Yorkshire Education Group's Business and Tourism Forum.

Our forum has three key aims:

1. To provide you with information about the current Business and Tourism provision offered by our colleges along with a general understanding of what your next generation of employees are learning. This will then be followed up with an opportunity for you to speak to our staff and have a say on what you need from your future workforce, our learners, which will allow us to develop the skills and qualities you are looking for within each of our students.

2. To highlight how we can help you fulfil your CPD and upskilling needs including a training needs assessment of your business. This support, which funding may be available for depending on whether your business meets the relevant criteria, can be organised as bespoke courses for your business or in collaboration with other businesses allowing your employees to network whilst they train further building their skills.

3. Finally we offer time for you to network with other local and regional businesses whilst enjoying a free breakfast.
