Employability and Skills Summit - Book your place now.

Bridging the gap and developing the skills to underpin the Industrial Strategy across the Midlands Engine

The Summit will explore how regional prosperity rests on having sufficient skilled staff and, as identified through our quarterly economic survey, why there is a continued problem faced by employers with regards to the shortfall of available skilled labour in our region. The summit will explore how the region can address this challenge to ensure there is a bright future for our local economies and our young people

Building on previous years' event, the Chamber's 2018 Employability and Skills Summit will continue to deliver against the manifesto aim - to bridge the gap between education and the world of work, thus creating an environment to improve competitiveness, innovation and productivity levels.

In response to the perennial problem employers face in accessing the right labour* to fulfill their needs the summit will bring together education providers, businesses and policy makers to discuss the practical ways in which the business and the education sector can work together more effectively to deliver the skills required for economic growth in the East Midlands.

The conference takes place on 20 June 2018 at Loughborough University from 8.30am to 1.00pm.
