Event description
Macclesfield Pledge Meeting for schools and employers to shape the agenda for employability skills and career opportunities for young people

About this Event

You are invited to the first Macclesfield Pledge meeting since our regional launch in June.

The Pledge Partnership, part of the Cheshire and Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership, puts employers at the heart of inspiring, informing and communicating with the next generation of employees in Cheshire and Warrington.

The Macclesfield Pledge area covers Macclesfield, Congleton, Wilmslow, Poynton and Knutsford. The meeting is a chance to launch the new Macclesfield Pledge to bring local employers and schools/colleges together, helping shape how we inspire and inform young people about the career prospects and skill requirements locally.

We are looking to reach out to employers in the area and to come and find out more about engaging with the Macclesfield Pledge. We are extremely privileged that all the schools and colleges within our area are already working with the Macclesfield Pledge and keen to work with local businesses to help young people in the area become more employer ready.

Why Attend?

• Discover more about The Macclesfield Pledge

• Network with other local businesses

• Find out how to work with schools and colleges (inc. work experience, careers fairs)

• Learn about the exciting Digital Skills Partnership

Following the successful pilot of The Pledge Partnership in Macclesfield and Crewe, The Pledge Partnership is now part of the Cheshire and Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership and funders including European Social Funding have enabled us to roll out The Pledge across the region. We now have ten Pledge areas of which Macclesfield is one and we are keen to engage as many employers as possible to build on the success that has already been achieved.
