Bridging the skills gap with Be More

An event from Liverpool City Region Combined Authority and Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram, addressing the longstanding skills shortages in LCR.

Be More is connecting the dots for businesses in LCR, providing a single point of access to training, support and funding. From free courses to a bespoke Skills Brokerage Service, the project is giving employers the tools to upskill their workforce and boost their business.

Join us from 8am-10am on Wednesday 28th September at the Maritime Museum to learn more about the available support and hear from local businesses about the funding and training they’ve received to develop their workforce.

Plus, founder of Mowgli Street Food, Nisha Katona MBE, will be in conversation with Mayor Joanne Anderson to reflect on her experience of building her business.

This event is brought to you in partnership with Liverpool City Region Combined Authority.
