The next instalment of our Manufacturing Policy Group will see speakers from the West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) and Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). Tony O’Callaghan is T Level Planning Manager at the WMCA. We know from conversations with our manufacturers that although industry has a huge role to play in the success of this new post-16 technical qualification, sufficient knowledge of the qualifications itself is poor. Tony will discuss the background of the T Level and what is needed from industry to ensure students can get the work placements they need. We also have a speaker from BEIS ‘EU Exit Business Intelligence’ team who wish to speak to Chamber manufacturers about support as the UK leaves the EU and how Chamber members can access that.

Seminar Room at the Wolverhampton Business Solutions Centre,
