The Black Country Chamber of Commerce has named Sandwell College as sponsors of the Director of the Year Award at their annual business awards reception in November.

Shaun Hunt, Managing Director of Apprenticeships, Employers and Skills at the College said, “Sandwell College is the one of the fastest growing general further education colleges and the largest deliverer of post-16 education to young people in the West Midlands.

“Working with Employers, large and small, is fundamental to colleges like Sandwell. Businesses support a whole range of student activity from work experience to industrial placements and in turn colleges support the growth and workforce development of businesses across all sectors.

“An effective director will provide a business with sound strategic and operational decisions to ensure growth, including working with colleges like Sandwell on workforce planning and having the right staff with the right skills to tackle the challenges ahead.

“Sandwell College, as a provider of high-quality career and business focussed education and training right across the Black Country, is delighted to sponsor the Director of the Year Award and celebrate the partnerships that are needed between colleges and business."

Winners will be announced at an Awards Reception following the Black Country 2.0 Business Conference on November 11th.

The region’s longest running business support organisation will announce winners in ten categories from those businesses and leaders who have faced tremendous adversity in recent months but have shown amazing resilience and ingenuity and achieved astonishing turn around results during the pandemic.

The Chamber’s biggest campaign in its 180-year history, Black Country 2.0, is an initiative launched earlier this year to focus the Chamber’s lobbying and business support work and helping its members to reboot and rebuild whilst enabling businesses to rebound as they navigate the end of the Brexit transition period and the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Conference will be held at Wolverhampton Racecourse on the 11th of November and will feature a range of speakers from the business and policy world and a small physical audience, it will be followed by the Black Country 2.0 Awards Reception for shortlisted applications.

Both events will be streamed virtually for those unable to attend the physical events.
