Employment and Skills Convention 2024

The route to better jobs, skilled workers and prosperous communities

Wednesday 10 July 2024 | The Eastside Rooms, Birmingham

Our changing economy and society are transforming the way we learn and work. How can we widen access to employment for those missing out today? How can we help people make the most of longer working lives with access to good work? What can employers do to invest in skills for the future? How can local leadership of skills and employment help close inequalities?

Thanks to our sponsors Clarion Futures, Youth Futures Foundation, Edge Foundation and City and Guilds, we’re excited to bring together politicians, policy makers, practitioners and researchers to explore the route to better jobs, skilled workers and prosperous communities.

New for this year, we will also be hosting a Housing Zone in partnership with Communities that Work, sponsored by Abri and SNG (Sovereign Network Group). This will provide opportunities for networking across social housing, employment and skills sectors, as well as a specific focus on the role of social housing in providing skills and employment support.

Register your place

As the convention is free of charge and we have a fixed number of spaces, we will be limiting places to two per organisation in the first instance. Any additional registrations for that organisation will be put on a reserve list.
