Event description

Description

Since the Bridging the Gap conference in 2017, the Furniture and Interiors Education, Skills and Training Alliance has been working towards a solution that will enable furniture and interiors businesses of all sizes to easily train and recruit employees for all job functions.

Furniture and Interiors Skills Plus is a new service that will provide employers in our sector with access to a wide variety of funded training programmes for apprentices and the upskilling of existing staff.

We will be presenting this solution to industry in April and would like to see you there!

Ticket includes refreshments and lunch.
