Join the International Skills Summit on 19 May

With recovery and rebuilding after the pandemic on everyone’s mind, WorldSkills UK will host an International Skills Summit on 19 May devoted to this pressing issue.

With the theme Skills for Growth, the five-hour summit is aimed at everyone from educators and employers to government officials, promising access to some of the most talented names in the field.

Among those taking part are Mark Gregory, the chief economist at Earnst and Young (EY), Nazrene Mannie, executive director of the Global Apprenticeship Network, Kate Green, MP, the UK shadow spokesman for Education and many more.

The event is organized into short sessions, with topics that include the demand for high level skills by both advanced manufacturing and international investors, and examples of skills excellence from a global perspective, with a focus on Singapore.

WorldSkills UK describes the event is a chance to “hear how skills will be key for the recovery, pose questions to the speakers, and learn how sectors such as clean tech and advanced manufacturing are developing the skills of the future.”

Held in partnership with the UK’s national qualification awarding organization, NCFE, you can register for the International Skills Summit on the WorldSkills UK website.
