The Bucks Skills Hub and Buckinghamshire Business First, the local Growth Hub, work in partnership and focus on shaping strategy and projects with local business owners and members to support and grow the resident economy.

Together, we promote and optimise links between the business community and education and training providers to enable young people and adults to develop the skills and qualifications they need to be successful in the workplace, no matter what stage they are at.

We are also asking employers to let us know if they can offer work experience - and we are letting employers know that via the Buckinghamshire Skills Hub website, we will broadcast their work experience offer to thousands of young people in Buckinghamshire!

From learning about hiring an apprentice and inspiring the workforce of the future to advice on all aspects of running a business, there is nothing to lose and everything to gain from getting in touch with Buckinghamshire Business First.
