Blackburn College is pleased to be leading on a Workforce Integration project, as part of Blackburn with Darwen Council’s Social Integration programme. They are looking for Blackburn and Darwen based companies who are committed to ensuring an inclusive and diverse workplace and who can share best practice with others.
Each participating company will identify a member of staff who can train as a Workforce Integration Ambassador.
Ambassadors will participate in training sessions focused on recruiting and retaining a diverse workforce. The interactive workshops include sessions with external agencies and experts. The project will train 20 Ambassadors so places are limited – BUT PLACES ARE STILL AVAILABLE.
There will be a grant of £300 available for organisations who have successfully completed the programme.
The remaining dates are:
- Friday 24 September
- Friday 22 October
- Thursday 25 November
