VQ Day – Celebrating Vocational Qualifications, The Royal Horticultural Halls, 23 JUNE 2010

Working in partnership with Edge, Business in the Community is bringing together companies to provide an employer voice in the continuing debate around vocational qualifications in the workplace.

Over the past seven years, Business in the Community has demonstrated a track record in developing the business case for upskilling in the workplace, and building on this momentum we are now working with Edge to bring the employer voice to VQ Day. Edge is an independent education foundation dedicated to raising the stature of practical and vocational learning, so that the UK future workforce is equipped with the skills to be successful in the modern economy.

Last year 3.6 million vocational qualifications were awarded and millions of people will achieve similar success this year. This vocational achievement is celebrated every June on VQ Day. Now in its third year, VQ Day aims to raise the stature and demonstrate the benefits of practical and vocational qualifications to future learners, employers, opinion formers and the wider public.

The event will begin with a panel discussion with business leaders including Louise Smalley of Whitbread and Neil Scales of Merseytravel, bringing vocational qualifications to life from an employer perspective and shaping the ensuing round table debates which will focus on the benefits of vocational qualifications to businesses, and the part employers can play in raising the status of vocational learning.

The session will run from 9:00am to 11:30am and is relevant for senior HR/ Training/Development Manager/Directors.
The celebration event will continue until 3:00pm, hosted by entertainment icon Arlene Phillips OBE, a World Skills zone, performances and interactive activities.

Join leading UK employers for an insightful and interactive debate on vocational qualifications –

    Academic papers writing firms are long year in academic papers writing industry. Therefore, they have enough practice to provide certified help and we should undoubtedly buy college essays.

    Taking the raw supplies, producing them, selling this back,? there is an extremely big variance in price tag, keep this poor lesser, make the rich wealthier. We desire to make some sort of balance inside economics, not simply in politics. They are generally related obviously. And There’s no doubt that socially, we cannot be identical, never. Culturally, we can’t be identical. We may cooperate, we may integrate. As very much as we can. How may we do this? I believe leaders on the planet have a great responsibility in this. Human beings can are living together. I don’t forget a video clip. Which one particular? Planet from the Apes.? The older version, not the newest one. There is actually new one particular. Which differs from the others. Not so excellent.
