Unlocking construction’s digital future: A skills plan for the North East

CITB / CENE / G4C have partnered to deliver a North East event on digital construction skills.

Modern technologies will be the cornerstone of construction sector reform to increase productivity, efficiency and quality of delivery. However, for change to happen, new cultures and ways of working need to be driven from the top; leaders of companies large and small need to ‘think digital’ in everything they do.

Join the Construction Industry Training Board, Constructing Excellence and Generation for Change to hear about the opportunities and challenges of digital construction technologies. Speakers will include CITB, BIM Strategy, Kier and Space. 

  • Increase your awareness of digital construction techniques.
  • Find out about future digital construction technologies.
  • Understand the implications for construction skills and training.
  • Find out about funding available to digitally upskill your workforce.

The event will be followed by a networking drinks reception.
