Hundreds of providers come together with ESL to network, share information, co-design services, help us tap into amazing Bristol resources and spread the word. The City Leaders Group for Employment and Skills provides a strategic forum for the DWP, the City Council, the local college, probation service and mental health service to discuss and tackle priorities together.
The Into Learning Meeting brings post 16 providers and frontline workers together to find post 16 places for young people disengaged from learning. The Ways2Work Network provides an opportunity for employment support providers to plan and promote their work together. The Community Learning Advisory Board provides a forum to monitor, champion and steer community learning in Bristol.
The value in all these collaborative forums and exchange networks is reaping rewards for all.
