Skills, Training & Technology
Talking Industry’s Skills, Training & Technology panel discussion will bring together key industry leaders.

The focus will be on Bridging the Engineering Skills Gap for Factories of the Future, and will highlight that in order to future proof both our recovery and future, Government and industry need to address not just the immediate term skills and training needs, but also the mid-term.

At the heart of a future education and training system is the need to help manufacturers adopt to new digital technologies. This panel discussion will also look at what is needed to support these needs and help bridge any skills gaps.
