The UK needs to help fight climate change and the housing crisis and this will be achieved by ensuring a talent pool of young people are brought into the vibrant industry of the built environment.
This is a seminar hosted by Wales Week London partners Gerald Eve and The Skills Centre - two businesses with an extensive presence in London, and with deep Welsh foundations.
A panel of experts will be discussing updates in the education and training of young people ensuring they have the skills to solve the problems of the future, followed by the opportunity to network.
This seminar will discuss the introduction of a GCSE in the Built Environment in Wales, as well as the re-establishment of a RICS accredited degree in Wales. There will also be a conversation on the construction skills needed in the modern workforce, including business led apprenticeships and how the built environment is an attractive career path for young people.
