A BREAKFAST meeting is planned to bolster links between the education and business sectors in Stroud.
The session on February 22 will be hosted by Stroud District Council at Ebley Mill.
Representatives from businesses, secondary education and training providers from across the district have been invited, together with regional and national agencies, to consider how they can work together.
The council's idea is to support young people through the transition from full-time education to the workplace, its leader Councillor Geoff Wheeler (L, Dursley) said.
"Promoting jobs and growth is a key priority," Mr Wheeler said.
Speakers will include the chairman of Stroud District Schools Partnership and the regional manager from the Department of Work and Pensions.
