  • Laura Hurcombe, Business Planning Manager at SPP Pumps who will discuss growing and retaining talent with apprenticeships
  • Nick Howell, will speak about how one of the UK's leading soft drinks manufacturers work. What a recent investment means for their Royal Forest Factory in Coleford and the importance of apprentices in their workforce.

Guests will have the opportunity to network with other local businesses whilst enjoying a delicious full English breakfast in the College’s superb new restaurant, The View.

There will also be the opportunity to meet the Gloucestershire College Business Hub team on a one-to-one basis to get advice on training and apprenticeships, including funding that may be available to upskill your staff members.
