The Skills Resource Network (SRN)

The Skills Resource Network (SRN) aims at preparing graduates for the world of work through specialist training that exposes them to the benefits of a more alert and critical business mind.

The SRN aims at providing links between its Partners, who are mainly corporate entities on the one hand, and qualified students that have been trained to join a repository of skilled resources called The Skills Bank.
