TRANSFORMING CONSTRUCTION TRAINING
Sunday 15 to Tuesday 17 March 2020
Transforming Construction Training
A Changing Digital Construction Sector
There are major changes taking place in the way we develop, design and construction of our building and infrastructure assets, as well as the materials that we will use to ensure sustainability. These include BIM with data management, CAD, Drones (UAV – LIDAR), Off-site manufacturing – LEAN, Robotics – RCT, Sustainable ‘SMART’ materials and Virtual Reality.
We as trainers need to be able to support the sector which means we must understand all these new techniques and materials so that we can prepare apprentices and learners for the world of construction in the 2020s and 2030s. This means we will need to invest in our equipment and tutors.
National Educational Policy for England
Whilst all this is happening policy on Apprenticeships and Technical Education has been changing. Many of us have now moved or are about to move to the new Apprenticeship Standards and are planning to deliver the new T Levels over the coming years.
Colleges of the Future
The FE Sector has recognised the need to change and the Association of Colleges has set up the Independent Commission on the College of the Future to consider what a College might look like in late 2020s/30s and how we get there.
Pulling all this together we have a great Conference Agenda with major
keynote speeches from:
Mark Reynolds, CEO of Mace Group and Chair of the Construction Leadership Council’s Skills Group, who will give us the employers view; and
David Hughes, CEO of the Association of Colleges, who will talk to us about the Colleges of the Future.
We invoice you and payment can be made by BACS or Card. Cancellation terms are full refund if cancelled on or before 28 February 2020 by email. After this date, we allow named changes to others within your organisation; however, refunds will not be given as we fully committed to our suppliers.
