Bridging the Skill Gap networking event

February 23, 2016

Ahead of the roll out of UKWA’s new Training & Education programme this spring, our members have the opportunity to attend a networking event to address ‘Bridging The Skills Gap’ on Tuesday 8 March, hosted by Maxim Logistics Group in Corby.

Andy Lawrence of Maxim Logistics  and UKWA Supervisory Board member, is also part of the newly established UKWA Training & Education Advisory Group, will be sharing the company’s experiences with workplace training and particularly apprenticeships.

This forum will provide an opportunity for members to explore workplace training and education in the logistics sector as a way to boost productivity and improve profitability, says Peter Ward, CEO of UKWA.

This year UKWA is rolling out its new Training and Education programme, with a special emphasis on apprenticeships. Our focus will be on ensuring that apprenticeship schemes are tailored around the business needs of individual companies and supporting members in accessing available funding to help them develop the skilled workforce they need.

The event, which is free to attend for UKWA members, will be held from 17.30 – 19:30 on Tuesday 8 March at Maxim Logistics Group, 2 Darwin Road, Willowbrook East Industrial Estate, Corby, NN17 5XZ.

Due to high demand, places are limited to two representatives per company.
