Alternative ways of bridging the skills gap: A Manufacturing Management Live Panel

​The latest MM live panel discusses one of the biggest challenges facing the industry – the need for skills.

The skills crisis has been well documented, and numerous ‘fixes’ have been tried in recent years, such as the Apprentice Levy and the newly introduced T Level qualifications. But are these enough? Should we be thinking outside of the box and looking elsewhere for the solution.

Joining MM editor Chris Beck to look at some alternative ways of bridging the skills gap are

  • Verity Davidge – Director of Central Policy at Make UK
  • Lance Harris – Manufacturing Sector Lead at the Ministry of Justice’s New Futures Network
  • Henry Powell – Commercial Director of Littlehampton-based Inpress Plastics Ltd
