EBSI MD – Jamela Khan and Associate Consultant George Pittaway travelled to India and Qatar to meet and work in partnership with training providers, colleges and other educational institutions to promote Work Related learning in their curriculum and to share our programmes and services with them. The visit also included feasibility studies, as well as market research to understand if there was a market for services such as the ones EBSI deliver to young people in schools and colleges within the UK as well as to find the right partners who we could work with on Train the Trainer basis to share our programmes and services.
These visits also included interviewing employers from across different skills sectors, as well as both private and state companies. The research was also intended to discuss and to ascertain how they could incorporate the concept of Work Related learning and staff volunteering into their Corporate Social responsibility programmes, by helping their local schools community. It was concluded that the visits were successful and that both the countries had the demand to prepare young people for the world of work, however gaining the support from industry was a challenge.
