always possible to explore practical plans for STEM skills development in West Sussex
We are facilitating an event for the Manufacturing Engineering & Technology Alliance on 11th April, in collaboration with The Coastal West Sussex Partnership and Sussex Learning Network.
It is open to local business and education practitioners interested in the future of skills on the south coast, and the key role that STEM employers and education providers need to play together.
“The lack of skilled recruits at every level consistently tops the list of concerns for manufacturing, engineering and technology businesses in our area and indeed nationally. The problem hinders growth, affects profitability and can even put business viability and succession planning in doubt. The skills drain caused by Brexit just exacerbates the problem.
METALL #10 seeks to find some local solutions to this long-term problem by getting businesses and education professionals in the same room to look at practical ways we can all work together to help influence local change in our schools and colleges.
This event will be more than a talking shop. It seeks to take the conversation out of the room to agree on some real outcomes to influence and help our educators (and their students) to understand the great career opportunities that pursuing STEM subjects can lead to”
Join us on 11 April, 8am – 11am at the University of Chichester Engineering & Digital Technology Park.
