A warm welcome awaits you from Leicester College and CITB (Construction Industry Training Board). This joint collaboration will be showcasing, support, training, grants and funding available to SMEs. This event will help local businesses win bids locally to become supply chain partners/providers for large local developers. In recognising the importance of construction, we are keen to ensure that local businesses can secure more work on major developments and projects across Leicester and Leicestershire. This is an important period for the construction industry as nearly 9,000 new construction jobs expected to be created in the East Midlands from 2018- 22
Our programme includes guest speakers which comprise two main contractors who will be providing you with information on how to be part of their supply chain. The event will also include key information on procurement for construction companies in general and a free, light lunch.
Steve Thompson- Head of Apprenticeships at Leicester College will lead the session on how to upskill your workforce, talk about the apprenticeship levy and how we can help your business with your training needs.
Our programme will conclude with questions and answers in an open forum format to our panel and guest speakers. This is a brilliant opportunity to network and develop new local business contacts.
