Event description

Description

  • Are you a construction industry SME interested in identifying new revenue streams, increasing your competitive advantage, and realising significant financial savings for your business?

  • Do you struggle to send employees on training that will expand and develop their skillsets?

  • Are you an Apprenticeship Levy payer and interested in accessing up to £10,000 of funding to up-skill and re-skill existing employees of any age?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, BCTG Construct, in association with Circular Glasgow, would like to invite you to attend a FREE information session hosted at the Construction Scotland Innovation Centre.

How will this benefit my business?

You will hear about how Circular Glasgow can provide you with the support, tools, knowledge and access to funding streams necessary to create a business model that is fit for the future. SMEs will have the opportunity to sign up for a comprehensive FREE on site assessment of their business. Circular Glasgow is funded by Zero Waste Scotland and the European Regional Development Fund.

BCTG Construct will be launching a new trade publication on the skills gaps within the construction industry and will be providing an update on the development of their learning programme that is designed to help businesses increase productivity, reduce inefficiencies and close the technical skills gap by offering supervisors an 'anytime, anywhere' learning experience.

CSIC will be offering guided tours of the Innovation Factory, explaining membership options and how they can support innovation within your business.

Finally, City of Glasgow College will be on hand to provide information on how you can access up to £10,000 of training through the Flexible Workforce Development Fund, and to outline the range of support services and curriculum products the College has on offer to help you develop your workforce.
