Two Way Street

Enhancing productivity, employment and training opportunities

Over a period of nine months and through a series of exchanges, leaders from the worlds of business, education and training identified ways of working together to enhance productivity, employment and training opportunities in the local, regional and ultimately the national economy.

Involving large, small and medium-sized enterprises, the case studies, videos and supporting resources capture the ways in which these partnerships have been sharing expertise - occupational, business process, curriculum and pedagogic - to plan, design and deliver innovative and sustainable education and training which is both responsive to the needs of industry and develops a clearer line of sight to work for learners.

‘'The [Two-way Street] project has enabled the college to better understand from industry the type of training required to improve the skills that are needed in the local area."
