Cheshire businesses to benefit from college breakfast meeting

Congleton business owners invited to Pecks Restaurant

Cheshire local business leaders are set to gather at Pecks Restaurant in Congleton on Wednesday 7th October for a business breakfast event organised by The Congleton College.

Starting at 8am, the meeting will enable them to contribute to, and benefit from, the continued successful development of the college, which is part of Congleton High School’s post-16 provision.

Congleton entrepreneur Andrew Pear, who is also chair of The Congleton College Steering Group, is hosting the event in order to keep local employers updated on all the latest developments of the unique teaching and training facility.

He is also hoping to enable local businesses to take an active role in the vocational coaching of the town’s young people.

The Congleton College is facilitating links between students from Congleton and surrounding areas with local companies and training provider Total People.

This work aims to ensure that employers have access to the ‘work ready’ young people they need to make their businesses successful well into the future and that Cheshire’s young people are given the opportunities to provide them with rewarding, lifelong careers.

Congleton High School and The Congleton College are especially keen to develop links with design-focused ICT companies and those that can offer work placements in skilled trades such as car mechanics, electrical work and joinery.

If your business is able to offer placements, or if you would like to book one of the few remaining places at the business breakfast, please contact Work Experience Co-ordinator Jill Sadat-Shafai at The Congleton College via jsadatshafai@congletonhigh.com or 01260 387 000.
