Hurstwood hosts college ‘Invest in Skills Advice Day’

Invest in Skills with Bury College Business Solutions

Property firm Hurstwood is opening its doors to Bury College in a ground-breaking partnership designed to help local businesses gain a competitive advantage through training and development.

Hurstwood is offering the College a base at its landmark Rossendale office complex, Link 665 in Haslingden, Rossendale for a two day event, which is being held on April 6th and 7th 2011.

Bury College Business Advisors will be on hand to offer local employers and employees free advice and guidance about how they can benefit from training including Apprenticeships, short courses, qualifications and funding opportunities.

Employers can take advantage of one-to-one personal development assessments to discover which training method can help their business to re-skill, and up-skill employees, and bridge the gaps created by cuts in budgets. Guests are also invited to attend a short business presentation and taster sessions such as Digital Photography, Motivation and Team Building will also take place throughout the day.

Carrie McKenzie, Executive Director of Development at Bury College said: “We are delighted to work with Hurstwood to offer this valuable service to local businesses and hope they will benefit from the advice available. Training is an important commodity. Helping businesses not only survive but grow during the recession. Training through Bury College Business Solutions offers an affordable and flexible solution enabling businesses to improve productivity, increase profitability and competitiveness and inspire employee motivation and innovation.”

Ashley Loofe of Hurstwood added: “When we heard about the College’s ideas to encourage businesses and individuals to find out more about training we were very keen to help out.

“We both agreed that giving the college a temporary base on an estate like Carrs would be an innovative way of reaching out and getting close to the business community. Anyone interested in hiring our meeting and conference room facilities in Rossendale should get in touch with us on 0161 220 1999”
