Fuller Working Lives 1 day Skills Analysis Workshop

Retrain, recruit, retain

A pilot to support employers and the older workforce

Fuller Working Lives is a new initiative from the Department of Work and Pensions. Working in partnership with the National Careers Service, the programme is designed to help businesses to face their concerns about looming skills shortages and an aging workforce and improve their talent management, recruitment and retention.

This one day workshop will focus on how to conduct a skills analysis in order to understand the current and future skills needs, the gaps that may be present and what can be done to fill those gaps.

The Facilitator

The workshop will be facilitated by Alison Sumpter CIPD. Alison is a learning and development professional with a breadth of experience across a variety of sectors.
