Supply Chain Sustainability School
One way we are supporting local businesses, particularly SMEs, is through our partnership with the Supply Chain Sustainability School.
The Supply Chain School can help upskill your business, putting you in the best position to tender for work on the project – skills that will assist in other areas as well. This will help your business grow and leaves a legacy of a more capable, dynamic and sustainable supply chain. It also helps us keep more of the investment from the project within the local economy.
You can register your business for the school and take modules on topics that will provide a firm basis for working on a major piece of infrastructure. We will also offer workshops, run periodically with a focus on supply chain gaps and areas that may require particular attention.
Register for the Supply Chain Sustainability School and start developing your business’ capabilities at Supply Chain Sustainability School.
We have run several introductory events across the region to introduce local businesses to the school and to learn where support may be most needed. We also run workshops to focus on particular topics that will help SMEs grow the skills we hope to see in the project’s supply chain.
Slides from the October 2019 Essex event and video case studies telling of local businesses’ experiences working with Highways England are available below.
