Teesside University is partnering with a national training provider to create a ‘one-stop-shop’ for employers in the region.
Focusing on a range of industries, the partnership with County Durham based training specialist Learning Curve Group aims to provide businesses with access to a range of vocational and professional training from non accredited courses through to postgraduate qualifications.
Professor Jane Turner OBE DL, pro vice-chancellor (enterprise and business engagement), explained: “We are delighted to be working together with Learning Curve Group. It is an ambitious organisation with an exciting vision, clearly passionate and dedicated to the skills agenda, so our values and priorities are very much aligned.
“This partnership nicely complements the existing Teesside University College partnership with Darlington, Hartlepool, Redcar and Cleveland and Stockton Riverside Colleges, ensuring we are perfectly placed to plug the skills gaps and training needs across all levels of industry.”
Brenda McLeish, chief executive of Learning Curve Group, added: “This new strategic partnership with Teesside University is a template for how Higher Education and training providers can work in synergy to provide employers with a highly-comprehensive level of support.
“As business and industry evolves it is essential that all areas of training and education can collaborate and share opportunities to ensure companies can remain competitive in local, national and international markets by attracting and retaining skilled and talented people.”
