New ‘Venture’ hub launches

Sep 17, 2021

The CCR has announced the launch of a new Skills and Talent hub, to meet the future skills needs of employers and employees across South East Wales.  Brand-named ‘Venture’ this new employment and skills enterprise went live on 13th September.

The new skills hub features Venture Graduate: a re-branded, redesigned and revitalised graduate recruitment scheme provided at zero cost to any organisation in South East Wales, by the expert in-house graduate recruitment team at CCR.  New features include the introduction of a structured cohort model which will run as 3 separate programmes throughout the year – the first of which opened to businesses on the 13th of September.

The hub also features Venture Specialist – a collection of niche skills initiatives that the CCR is directly supporting or funding.

Leigh Hughes, Chair of the Regional Skills Partnership said;

“Venture brings a one-stop-shop for businesses looking to grow and people looking to advance their careers in the region. We’re building on the success of our graduate scheme and the amazing service that it’s already provided – and now we’re looking to shape a wider suite of services, tailored to the exact needs of employers and employees, including introducing skills bootcamps and a range of qualifications that match up people and employers in the most efficient and engaging way, from apprenticeship to more senior levels.

“Working alongside the CCR Regional Skills Partnership, Venture will be able to align training courses and qualifications more closely with what employers are telling us they really need”
