HELP BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN SCHOOLS AND BUSINESSES
Over a quarter of FSB members say that finding appropriately skilled staff is the biggest challenge to business growth.
We’re working with the Government to make it easier for small businesses to get involved in inspiring young people about apprenticeships and the world of work.
In Kent, we offer a practical way for businesses to engage with education through Skills 30:30.
In this two-hour event, businesses hear from a local authority and relevant recruitment groups, while students take part in an employment-related workshop. Then both groups get together for facilitated speed-networking.
Join in to find out about local developments AND share your business advice and expertise with students.

“We have held two FSB 30/30 events at the our School during 2019. Approximately 60 of our pupils from a range of year groups have enjoyed highly inspiring talks from keynote speakers about how to make that first break into the world of work. For many of our students it is quite a daunting and an often unexpected leap from the comfort of the classroom to the interview panel and their advice is hugely beneficial to helping the students to develop the right mindset for being ready to enter the job market. The networking event is an equally powerful experience with students and businesses connecting to share their big ideas for themselves and advice on how to turn that into a reality. The FSB 30/30 event was voted as the most popular careers event held at the School in 2019. We can’t wait for the next opportunity to open our doors to more local businesses”.Principle Kent School
