Event description
The Forward Trust, in partnership with Brent Council, are running a Round Table event to mark UK Employability Day 2019.

About this Event

The fourth UK Employability Day will take place on 28th June 2019, overseen by ERSA (Employment Related Services Association). Thousands of organisations across the UK will join the largest celebration for those supporting local people into work.

This year's theme is 'Closing the Gaps'. To find out more, please click here: https://ersa.org.uk/empday19

To mark the day, Forward want to bring together organisations across London who want to help close employment gaps by supporting disadvantaged people to enter, sustain or progress in work. With this in mind we are looking to run a round table event in London to bring together organisations and employers who want to:

1) Share what has worked for them

2) Gain knowledge on how they can do more

3) Learn about the tangible benefits this has to organisations

4) Network with other organisations

What the day looks like:

9.00am: Meet, great and coffee

9.30am: Introductions from The Forward Trust

9.40am: Brent Council to give overview of projects in area

10.00 – 10.30am: Employer presentation on the benefits of working with ex-offenders and other disadvantaged groups - examples of success

10.30 – 11.30am: Break out session, where attendees will discuss the following key questions in groups:

• What do we feel is the main challenge in recruiting from this talent pool? What has blocked us previously?

• Best practice – do you have an example of when it has worked and why?

• What would you do differently or like to see improved or put in place?

• What if anything have you changed or how can providers like us help you to get and retain the right people

11.30 – 12.00am: Presentation from someone who has overcome the barriers with support and the benefits to them and their employer

12.00am – 1.00pm: Networking and coffee
