Business Skills and Training Survey: West of England 2018
Business West invites you to take part in the Business Skills and Training Survey 2018.  

In its third year, this region wide survey not only helps education providers and key decision makers to ensure that training provision in the region is relevant to business needs, the results also feed into the overall West of England skills strategy guiding skills investment in the region.
  • Do you have the right skilled staff in your business for the year ahead?
  • With Brexit on the horizon what skills does your business need to succeed in 2018?
  • What recruitment methods will you use this year?
In return for your help we’ll make a copy of the full results available to you online (all results will be anonymised). 

You'll also be entered into a prize draw to win a £200, £75 or £50 Amazon or Cabot Circus gift card. 

The survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete - help us ensure the future of skills in our region.
