New partnership to boost education and business in the city
City of Bristol College and Engine Shed have announced a new partnership to support further education working even closer with businesses in Bristol.
The collaboration will allow City of Bristol College staff free access to the Engine Shed Business Lounge; conveniently located between the campuses and next to Bristol Temple Meads station.
Lee Probert, City of Bristol College Principal and Chief Executive comments: “This partnership allows us to cultivate our excellent relationship with the employer hub around the Temple Quarter.
“As part of the Learning City, our focus is to continue our close working relationships with Bristol employers, engaging them in curriculum development to ensure that we’re meeting their needs, filling the skills gap and giving our students the skills they need to progress”.
Nick Sturge, Director of Engine Shed, adds: ”Having City of Bristol College here is an invitation to businesses to engage more easily with apprenticeship provision and find out about the talented young people across the city who can add so much creativity to the workforce.
“We welcome the staff from the College to enjoy the collaborative environment we’ve created here where business, education, policy-makers and investors are working under the same roof.”
