John Stevenson will be attending A Night for Carlisle dinner at Carlisle College with the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, Rt Hon Iain Duncan Smith.
The dinner will be held at Carlisle College on Thursday evening.
John said ‘I am delighted that a senior cabinet member has been able to take the time to visit Carlisle and talk to local businesses and training providers regarding the skills and training needs in our part of the world.
Iain has a keen interest in getting people back into work. To do this successfully, skilled and sustainable employment opportunities are necessary. By discussing the requirements of our City’s businesses, Carlisle will be better placed to produce the home grown talent that is required to best sustain and expand industries in Carlisle.’
