Event description

Description

The Skillman project was established two years ago by the Sector Skills Alliance for Advanced Manufacturing. It brings together a unique collaboration between industry and education, including Jaguar LandRover and Scandinavian Airlines Systems. This European funded project has been working to develop technical qualifications in response to gaps in key industry sectors across the European Union, specifically focusing on robotics and composite materials.

The alliance has also undertaken critical research to explore the provision of skills development in these areas and the skills shortages faced by the industry sectors across Europe. This has led to pilot programmes in Demark and the UK to test the curricula that have been developed.

This free conference is aimed at engaging and disseminating the progress made in developing the qualifications to the vocational and education sectors, industry professionals and stakeholders in order to secure the legacy of this exciting project.

It will also open up opportunities to use the curricula, training content and learning materials developed to industry and education. All of this is available at no cost as outputs of this project are open access and funded by the EU.

The agenda will include:-

Keynote speech from Jo Lopes Head of Technical Excellence - Jaguar LandRover - who will be giving his unique perspective on the skills challenges faced by the automotive industry.

A tour of the Jaguar F-TYPE factory to see robots and robotic technicians in action.
