The North Wales Regional Skills Partnership (NWRSP) is set to launch its latest skills plan at an event in Llandudno later this month.

The “Empowering North Wales: Skills for the Future” event is being held to provide regional businesses with support and guidance for recruiting, retraining and upskilling their staff.

The event will serve as the launch of the Regional Skills and Employment Plan, which has been developed in collaboration with businesses and employers across the region. The three-year plan focuses on supply, demand and delivery of skills training across North Wales.

Attendees of the event can expect to gain a greater understanding of the available skills and employment opportunities within North Wales, as well as hear from employers and apprentices who will share insights from their skills and training programmes.

David Roberts, Chair of the NWRSP, said, “Businesses will be able to see first-hand the number of great opportunities we have in North Wales.”

He added, “Recently, it has been a difficult time for businesses, especially with the challenges of recruiting new talent within a highly competitive market.



As a result, organisations are looking for new ways to recruit but are also wanting to learn more about retraining and upskilling their current workforce.

The Empowering North Wales: Skills of the Future event will provide these insights for businesses and allow them to ask the experts directly.”

Sian Lloyd Roberts, Manager of the NWRSP, said, “We want to ensure the employers and businesses in North Wales understand what opportunities are available to support their staff and know where to go for support.”

She added, “The Regional Skills and Employment Plan has so much useful information that we’re eager to share to help businesses across North Wales.

We’ve worked closely with the Colleges, Universities and Industry leaders to identify best-practices for staff development and work-based learning.

The event will be a fantastic benefit to businesses, and we encourage all businesses – small or large to join us at the event in Llandudno.”

The event will provide an opportunity for businesses to learn more about the support and guidance available to them in recruiting, retraining and upskilling their staff.

The event takes place at Venue Cymru, Llandudno from 9:00 am – 12:30 pm, on the 27th of January 2023.
