Our Employer Partnerships
Partnerships and Collaboration
We’ve worked with many employers over the years and our partnerships have helped make a real difference to local communities. Our relationships with businesses have encouraged collaboration and innovation and opened up funding opportunities to benefit not just learners, but businesses and the wider economy.
Raising greater awareness of the many different ways that we can partner with your organisation is key to what we do. Building stronger collaboration with employers ensures our curriculum links closely with real work and the future skill demands of the future.
We’re always looking for partnerships to expand what the College offers, reach new learners, use different delivery methods and enhance the local business community.
Here are some of the employers we are currently working in partnership with:
G.O.S. Tool & Engineering Services Ltd
The company supported students by taking part in an Engineering Insight event held at Crosskeys Campus. Jobs and careers route options at the company were highlighted and how the knowledge and skills they were developing would be of value to them in the workplace. The company are hosting engineering work experience placements and are keen to deliver specialist engineering masterclasses to students.
Newport Wafer Fab
Newport Wafer Fab and the accompanying Compound Semiconductor Cluster expect to see a considerable increase in job opportunities over the next 2-5 years. To help address the acute skills shortage, particularly in engineering, Coleg Gwent are working collaboratively with the semiconductor strand steering group to bring together further education, higher education and industry to bridge these skills gaps. Tailored qualifications have been developed to meet Newport Wafer Fab’s requirements and the company have promoted the industries opportunities and apprenticeships to students at an Engineering Insight event held at Crosskeys Campus.
