How can colleges and universities ensure students have the skills you need unless you tell them what your future workforce plans are?
It’s about starting a conversation. One that often begins at a local level.

By collaborating with you, they can align their strategies with your own and develop models designed to meet your changing needs.

CDN supports colleges in Scotland through training, events, specialist projects and network activity and puts employer engagement at the heart of its work.
