We worked with Kevin Griffiths of Chrysalis Outcomes for Wolverhampton College to assess the likely local impact of public sector redundancies and options open to local partners to mitigate the worst effects. Questions posed of local partners included:
- what were their plans for restructuring and profiles of staff likely to be made redundant
- what support was to be made available for staff who were going to leave, including outplacement services
- what were their prospects of alternative employment, especially in the private sector
Recommendations addressed action by leading employers in the public sector, the Chamber of Commerce and the College itself, including services it could offer.
