Re­gion’s busi­ness bosses at col­lege to share IDEAs

Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - Yourviews -

CRON­TON Sixth Form Col­lege was host to the Liver­pool City Re­gion Lo­cal En­ter­prise Part­ner­ship board meet­ing, a gath­er­ing of high pro­file busi­ness lead­ers and politi­cians in­clud­ing Metro Mayor of the Liver­pool City Re­gion, Steve Rotheram, to dis­cuss in­dus­try is­sues across Mersey­side.

The LEP is a vol­un­tary part­ner­ship between lo­cal au­thor­i­ties and busi­nesses, set up in 2011 by the Depart­ment For Busi­ness.

As an LEP mem­ber, Cron­ton Sixth Form was de­lighted to wel­come the board to the col­lege’s IDEA Cen­tre.

With state-of-the-art learn­ing fa­cil­i­ties and high end en­gi­neer­ing equip­ment, spa­cious class­rooms and meet­ing rooms, it was an ideal venue.

Guests in­cluded Liver­pool LEP chair­man Asif Hamid MBE and Steve Rotheram. Steve Rotheram has been Metro Mayor of the Liver­pool city re­gion since 2017 and pre­vi­ously served as an MP for Liver­pool Wal­ton.

Jayne Smith, col­lege head of skills and en­ter­prise, said: “The project has been de­vel­oped with em­ploy­ers across the re­gion to re­spond to skill short­ages iden­ti­fied in­clud­ing in­no­va­tion, dig­i­tal, en­gi­neer­ing and ap­pli­ca­tions.” ●
