IEMA members can claim a 35% discount on the Green skills for green jobs summit, taking place in London on 22 November 2012

This one-day national conference and exhibition at the QEII conference centre in Westminster serves to ensure that workers are ready for the green jobs of the future. It boasts the following line-up of speakers:

  • John Hayes – minister for further education, skills and lifelong learning;
  • Gordon Marsden – Labour shadow minister for further education, skills and regional growth;
  • Mark Farrar – chief executive at CITB Construction Skills; and
  • David Strong – chair of the green deal qualification and accreditation forum at DECC.

With the launch of the green deal in the autumn, now is the time to address the skills gaps in an organisation. By identifying how to improve the performance of staff to enable them to take advantage of the opportunities the green deal can offer, a business could be on the receiving end of some very lucrative government contracts, say the organisers.

Conference delegates will have the opportunity to ask the speakers questions that relate to their business and find guidance on how to develop employees’ skills to compete for contracts and jobs that will become available via schemes such as the green deal.

They will also have the opportunity to network with more than 300 like-minded attendees, as well as explore the training options available via the exhibitors and sponsors of the summit.

To book a discounted place, visit the Green skills for green jobs summit website and click the “order now” tab to select the number of delegate places you wish to book, followed by the promotional code GSGJ35. Once the discount is applied, hit the order now tab and fill in the relevant details.

IEMA members who are representatives of small businesses (SMEs) can attend free of charge – to qualify, the organisation must have no more than 50 staff.
