Black Country Skills Factory to attend National Aerospace Supply Chain Conference

The Black Country Skills Factory will attend the National Aerospace Supply Chain Conference at RAF Cosford in Wolverhampton on Thursday 21st November.

The Black Country Skills Factory is an employer-led project supported by government funding whose aim is to address the skills shortages in the High Value Manufacturing (HVM) sector in the Black Country, the only scheme of this kind across the UK to focus specifically on the HVM sector.

The event organised by ADS; the prestigious trade organisation advancing the UK aerospace, defence, security and space industries, will take place between 9am-3pm.

With support from Invest Black Country and the four Black Country councils, this event will give current and prospective suppliers to the UK defence and civil aerospace sector the chance to hear about the latest industry initiatives, supply chain strategies and business opportunities available in the thriving aerospace industry.

The Skills Factory team will be available to discuss the project and the latest subsidised bite-size training courses on offer. HVM companies in the Black Country will also be able to find out if they’re eligible for a wage subsidy if they’re thinking of taking on an engineering apprentice.

For further information on the Black Country Skills Factory, visit: or contact Colin Parker on 07944 268709 / Jacki Lakin on 07944 268712.
