SummitSkills Meetings and Events


Throughout the year SummitSkills holds or sponsors a number of meetings and events that act as a platform to gain employer feedback in all areas relating to the sector’s skills requirements.

To take part in future consultations or events to ensure your voice is heard, please contact us to register your interest.

Sector Employers to lead the Skills developments – join the discussion

Following the resounding success of the North Region Employer Engagement Event, and the Wales Consultation, SummitSkills are hosting 3 more meetings in early November across the UK.

Places for all events are free but employers and sector specialists are key to their success so join us at the one that best suits you! Early booking is advised.

All 3 events run from 8.30am – 11.00 am and are aimed at providing employers with the opportunity to share their views and opinions on the key skills issues along-side our stakeholders in order to make a difference – from apprenticeships and trailblazers to qualifications and maintaining high standards.

We will also run a short workshop at each event to seek employer’s views on skills needs for the future as part of our UK wide research activity.

At the end of the seminar we hope that all those attending will have both learnt something new about skills and training but also had the chance to input to our national survey that we are undertaking on the role and future of skills in the building services engineering sector
