Logistics workshop invitation to business

A workshop is being held for businesses based in Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire to learn more about the logistics sector and how they can benefit from the latest trends, research and technological change.

Newark Logistics Workshop will take place on Tuesday, 14th June at Newark College, from 8am to 10am, and is free to attend.

The event is being hosted by Newark and Sherwood District Council in partnership with Newark College, part of the Lincoln College Group, the University of Lincoln and Nottingham Trent University.

Coun Keith Girling, deputy leader of the council, said: “We are committed to finding ways to support our businesses, increasing their skills, finding training opportunities for staff, and recognising opportunities in the sector they operate in.”

A research project took place at the beginning of the year by Nottingham-based FOCUS Consultants to understand the skills and training requirements of logistics businesses in the local area. The findings will be presented as part of the workshop.

Feedback from the consultation will be used to inform what courses are required by both Nottingham Trent University and the University of Lincoln to ensure that local people are training to meet the needs of a brand new enterprise hub.

The Smart Innovation, Supply Chain and Logistics (SiScLog) Enterprise Area will not only create a centre of logistical excellence with regional and national reach but provide hundreds of jobs for local people.

The enterprise area is one of nine priority projects outlined in Newark’s Towns Investment Plan, which was awarded £25m from the government in 2021 following a submission by Newark Towns Fund Board.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to see some of the developments at Newark College, including the recent construction college expansion and the temporary home of the Air and Space Institute, both of which also received Towns Fund investment.
