Description

TACKLING SKILLS GAPS IN CONSTRUCTION, ENGINEERING & TECH


Teach Too is a national iniatitive to create a shared language between industry and education.

Sussex has a critical shortage of construction, engineering and tech sector specialists designing and delivering the training offered by colleges training providers and universities.

These growth sectors need a pipeline of local talent that are being trained in cutting-edge skills.

Let's make it happen.




CO-DESIGN & DUAL PROFESSIONALISM

In this informal setting, we will explore how businesses and training providers can work differently, and more collaboratively, to develop apprenticeships, full-time vocational courses and forthcoming T-Levels.

We will look at how industry managers can develop their own training and mentoring skills in order to better recruit, support and develop junior staff. We will look at how teaching staff can update their knowledge of our region's major growth sectors, so that courses and qualifications are more relevant and cutting-edge.


WHO IS THIS FOR?

From business

  • HR Managers

  • Line managers

  • Department heads

From education

  • Curriculum leads

  • Senior leaders

  • Specialist tutors and assessors


OUTCOMES OF THIS SESSION?

There will be an automatic invitation to a mini-conference on the future of skills training development in Sussex, on 28th February at the AMEX Stadium. More information will be given about this in due course.
