I Know I Can
Parents and carers are being urged to take up an opportunity to meet and talk to Barnsley’s employers about the skills young people need to succeed in the workplace.
‘I Know I Can’ industry day on March 5 is part of a drive to boost the employability skills of Barnsley’s youngsters.
Organised by Business in the Community (BITC) on behalf of Barnsley Council, the event comes as business bosses nationally have called for greater emphasis on the skills employers need from school leavers.
Liz Needleman, area director of BITC England East, said: “’I Know I Can’ is an excellent initiative to help young people realise the skills they will need to get into the job market.
