Engage with learners
and future employees

It is proven that young people and adults seeking to establish a successful and sustainable careers experience much higher levels of success when they have a number of contacts with employers in the industry that they wish to explore.

Many progressive employers are developing sustainable talent pipelines by investing time in engagement with possible future employees. The seeds of activity sown early reap the best rewards and save thousands in recruitment fees and training later on. A planned proactive approach can yield far better results than ad hoc, reactive recruitment and training.

All of the WTPN members look for engagment with employers in a number of formats that can take little effort once planned properly with an education and training partner. To see the sectors that our members operate in please visit here.
