Back in April this year Futureworks (Yorkshire) were given the opportunity to both present and exhibit at the North Build Expo in Manchester.
On the face of it the event could have been like any other but the programme over 2 days provided an insight into something different.
The intention was to make the expo really current and bring the construction industry together. It was aimed at providing real focus on the future not the past.
With a new skills hub, panel discussion and a key address there could not have been a better platform for Futureworks (Yorkshire) and others to challenge the industry to do something about the drastic skills shortage we are facing along with reminding businesses that building their future is in the hands of our talented young people.
Embracing a range of apprenticeships can prove to be a pathway to successful workforce planning.
If you were not able to attend Manchester why not see for yourself by viewing the video below or visiting the next event in London later this year.
