Event Description:
With more than 32 million people in the UK currently employed, there is a major national skills shortage. 
There are two types of businesses in the UK, those that have been affected by the skill shortage and those that will be!
So what are the issues and how do businesses plan how they will cope? Is your business planning ahead and developing new talent for the future?
Our speakers will be looking in more detail at  both the general and more specific issues that are having an impact  in Plymouth and Devon, now and in the foreseeable future. Hear how strategies are in place to address these issues and how your business can benefit from a variety of support mechanisms available locally.

We can learn a lot from the construction industry that was one of the first to suffer and gain an insight into  how Building Plymouth can help and support business to address the gaps.

Come along and hear from the following speakers on how you can plan for and manage the skills gap in your business:

Phil Adams, Employment & Skills, HoSW LEP
Dr Emily Beaumont,  Associate Professor and Director, Marjon Business School
Ed Coley -  Building Plymouth
Kirsty Mottram, Skills Support for the Workforce, Serco UK
