Cogent Annual Westminster Skills Forum: “Skills for Growth”

Cogent Annual Westminster Skills Forum: “Skills for Growth”.

Diary date: 16th October 2012
House of Commons Terrace. 13.00-14.30

Cogent Sector Skills Council is pleased to confirm the date and venue for our annual Westminster skills forum, kindly hosted by Esther McVey MP for Wirral West.

This year our theme is Skills for Growth and we will be joined by senior industrialists from the Life Science, Process and Nuclear industries.

Speakers will include employers who are benefitting from benchmarking skills to Cogent’s Gold Standard, as well some of the first companies taking on Higher Level Apprentices.

We will also showcase examples of skills solutions and employer co-investment supported by project funds secured from the UK Commission for Employment and Skills.

The highlight of the event will be the formal launch of the new UK Life Science Skills Awards, and we look forward to announcing the Government speaker for this shortly.

The usual high quality Palace of Westminster food and refreshments, historic setting and Thames views are all part of the occasion.

We are expecting a higher demand for places this year and space on the Terrace is limited, so please email Kate Hutchins to register your interest in attending.

Formal invitations with instructions will be sent out nearer the time.
