Working with industry… reunited once again!

Posted on: 4/8/2021

On 28th July, we attended the first face-to-face Northwest Contractors Training Group meeting for some time. The group of Construction companies come together to discuss training and compliance topics from the industry.

It was great to catch up with a bit of networking with likeminded companies and colleagues after attending meetings remotely during COVID-19 restrictions.

The Product Lead for CPCS, Paul Taylor, gave a full update of recent developments with the card scheme and introduced some more work NOCN are doing to further improve the scheme.

Lorraine Richardson of CITB also provided an update regarding levy returns, the Net Zero Report, Construction Ambassadors, Kickstart, Skills and Training Funds and a new initiative for Apprentices, supporting Travel to Train.

Julie Lawrenson also provided some positive feedback about Bell Group’s experience of the Government Kickstart scheme. 

Looking forward to the next meeting in September 2021!!
