Runshaw College Employer Partnership Board
As part of its commitment to working collaboratively with educational establishments in the vicinity of its sites, GA Pet Food Partners is pleased to announce that it will be joining the Employer Partnership Board (EPB) of Runshaw College. With campuses in both Leyland and Chorley, Runshaw College has been delivering outstanding teaching and learning since 1974, as well as offering exceptional pastoral care. As a result, students have access to a wide range of opportunities and experiences to help develop skills that will prepare them fully for higher education and employment.
The EPB was formed to ensure the college continues to offer courses and apprenticeships that will progress its students and meet the needs of future labour market requirements. Runshaw is working with employers like GA, at the heart of the community, across a range of sectors, who can inform them about their sector, future skills needs, skills gaps and opportunities. Employers combined professional input in these areas will feed into Runshaw’s future curriculum plans. New courses and apprenticeship programmes will be researched and sourced using this information, enabling Runshaw to offer the best possible provision to its students.
The purpose of the EPB is:
- To share key industry information
- Identify future demand & skills shortages
- Enhance curriculum & programmes: Sixth Form College, Adult College & Apprenticeships
- Provide curriculum intent & propose changes from findings
