  • research and analyse specific AHSVEC&C skills, knowledge and intelligence needs around staff recruitment, retention and workplace skills development, Apprenticeships and Traineeships
  • identify common themes around skill development and skills shortages and evidence where precise action is needed within an audience of key business across the sector.
  • demonstrate the overall value and importance to the local economy of the AHSVEC&C industries and identify the training and development needs of owner managers to help support and grow their business.
  • work with the 11 local authorities in the SEM region in a mapping exercise to improve regional and national collaboration.
  • provide the AHSVEC&C sectors and visitor economy with information, analysis, knowledge and tools that will enable them access new talent, source funding opportunities and put in place sustainability recommendations and proposals to take advantage of future growth opportunities.

FireDog visits the World Wildlife Fund at the Living Planet Centre

FireDog Research were invited into one of the most inspirational, state-of-the-art work space the team have probably ever visited today.

The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) have created an amazing building in Woking that shows it is possible for people to live in harmony with nature. Smart eco-design, underground heat pumps, advanced technology and trees in the main work and breakout area makes this place an awesome place to work.

With environmental impact top of the agenda, when the team signed in at reception, we were invited to add our office postcode and mode of transport so the WWF team can assess the carbon footprint of our journey to the meeting.

Made us think that next time we should take the train and walk the last bit to the Living Planet Centre (we  also liked the pandas display…).
