A railway group is looking for small and medium-sized business from across the whole of the HS2 route to join a virtual enterprise academy.
SCS Railways – which is a joint venture between Skanska, Costain and STRABAG – wants ‘upskill’ 150 businesses via a free academy, to give them the tools to work on projects such as HS2.
The initiative will kick off in April and run through until June.
The aim of the academy is to upskill the construction industry, stimulate the supply chain and increase supplier performance.
Participants will learn about key requirements which will help win future work – including on some of the country’s major infrastructure projects.
The Birmingham Post Business Awards are back for 2021 and now open for entries here. The event will be held online only on Tuesday June 15 and will celebrate businesses and individuals across 12 categories including our overall Company of the Year and a special covid award.
The deadline to enter the awards is Monday April 19 and sponsorship opportunities are also now available. Please email [email protected] for details and follow the hashtag #BPBAwards for updates on social media.
The ceremony will be hosted on our new virtual events platform The Awards Room which gives nominees and sponsors the chance to experience real-time networking and hear from speakers.
All of your attendees will be placed together on your own table and you can invite people from outside your group to join you during the event.
Your table will also have private chat, allowing you to communicate with your colleagues during the awards. For more information about our Business Awards and events please visit www.reachplcevents.com.
There are 22 modules which will cover topics including HR, health and safety, social value and carbon management as well as innovation, the environment, risk management, finance and commercial awareness.
To take part, businesses must have had a turnover of £1 million for 2019/20 and a core business offering which aligns with the construction industry.
They must also have the ability to demonstrate why they would like to take part in the academy.
In order to access and apply, businesses will need to register on CompeteFor if they haven’t done so already. Registration closes on Tuesday, April 6.
