Professor Tony Travers, Director of LSE London, London School of Economics
Rt Hon Robert Halfon MP, Minister for Apprenticeships and Skills (invited)

In 2015, the engineering sector contributed an estimated 27% of the UK’s total GDP. Within a decade, 1 in 4 new jobs will be STEM jobs. It is vital for the economy that the correct skills development structures are put in place to enable everyone a pathway to participating in the workforce. Apprenticeships, traineeships and other forms of technical training are essential for ensuring this, and new forms of delivery will need to be developed.

Supported by Tideway, this reception will open up a discussion on this issue and allow opportunities for networking. It will be held on the Parliamentary terrace, with carefully selected parliamentarians and policy-makers, academics, consultants, journalists, influential commentators and key representatives from across the construction, development and planning industries.
