CIC 2050 Debates

This event has finished

The 2050 Group are hosting their second debate webinar on the skills gap within the construction industry. Join in to the webinar to gain an insight into how this can be approached from a range on speakers.

What role should universities and colleges play in preparing the next generation of construction professionals? What are the skills required by new entrants into the industry? Has the higher education system got the balance between academic and practical skills right? How are skills around issues such as climate change and biodiversity being addressed? What is the education system doing well and what could it improve?
