About MK College and the MK Skills Collaboration Service

MK College is the local education provider for a broad variety of qualifications, as well as employability skills and community training.

The MK Skills Collaboration Service provides a unique opportunity to deliver employer forums and workshops which are designed to drive employer participation and engagement. Businesses will be asked how they would like to grow and what skills are needed to achieve this growth?

By identifying the local skills shortages, we can provide clear advice and support to all corners of local business.

Working alongside SCIOT, MK:U, Open University and Cranfield University.

What are the Local Business Forums?

The forums aim to explore the unique situation facing each local organisation – and understand the vital skills required in MK, now and in the future.

Involvement by the local business community allows them to contribute to a curriculum – so that training providers can deliver the skills and knowledge that are ‘fit for purpose’.

Through discussion the forums will move from understanding current skills needs of employers, through to informing the development of future training requirements.

This exciting new approach will aid business growth and productivity and provide free training in Management and Leadership skills across all sectors.
