Online conference held via Zoom. £40 non-members and £25 members.

This year’s long-awaited STBA and SPAB Conference will take place online in three manageable chunks spread over three days focusing on key issues affecting the traditional built environment: embodied carbon, skills and research. We have some of the country’s leading speakers to help us understand the underlying issues, explore some potential solutions and then discuss all this together with a Q&A session at the end of each morning.

Day Two - SKILLS

Knowledge and skills go hand and hand. It is imperative therefore that we ensure that we have a workforce that is capable and competent to undertake the changes that the built environment needs to shoulder. In this section of the conference we aim to share the context of an emerging new skills requirement, explore background training data, view one working solution and facilitate a constructive debate.

This is an amazing dynamic area of the industry and one that requires fresh thinking and action. With today’s speakers we will get this in spades. New ways of working being devised and demanded by Welsh Government, latest research from CITB and some community led solutions from the South West.
