Solihull News Column - 9th November 2017
A new report produced by the Chamber and the University of Birmingham’s City-REDI says that HS2 will have a substantial impact on the economic and transport environment in the West Midlands.
But in order for this to happen, the Birmingham Economic Review 2017 reports that our young people need to be equipped with the skills and opportunities they need to succeed as they enter the local workforce. This means closing the gap between business and education.
Solihull Chamber is already helping to close the gap locally, developing a good working relationship with Solihull College. Not only is the Chamber based at the College but we hold meetings and events in the education establishment, which brings our member businesses in contact with our educationalists.
Together, we continue to inspire students to engage in the STEM subjects of science, technology, engineering and Maths, the key knowledge which employers seek.
