The Lower Thames Crossing project is introducing the Supply Chain School to support local businesses grow and realise the opportunity of working on a major piece of transport infrastructure. The project will require a large number of suppliers across a wide range of disciplines and is aiming to use as many local suppliers as possible.
The Supply Chain School will help upskill businesses, putting them in the best possible position to tender for work on the project. In doing this, it aims to leave a legacy of a more capable, dynamic and sustainable supply chain, as well as keeping investment from the project in the local economy.
Businesses will be able to register for the school and take learning modules on topics that will provide a firm basis for working on infrastructure projects. The school will also offer workshops, run periodically with a focus on supply chain gaps and areas that may require particular attention, such as tendering and gaining certification to qualify for working on projects.
The project is running an event in Essex to introduce businesses to the school and to learn from them where they may most need support. This will then help to shape the focus of future workshops.
This event will be a great opportunity to learn about working on a major infrastructure project and to find out about the support offered by the project for local businesses.
