About the seminar

Change within local authority FM, catering and cleaning services is a constant and organisations are continually adapting and innovating to remain competitive and commercially successful in a fragmented marketplace. Whilst the wholesale move to Academy schools is no longer Government policy, the relationship with schools will necessarily move to a contractual one and in-house teams must ensure that their commercial and tendering skills meet the challenge. At the same time, Councils continue to seek budget savings and FM is increasingly the beneficiary of this strategy as ever more services are bundled within the FM umbrella. School food policy across UK is increasingly divergent, reflecting the priorities of the devolved governments and funding for Universal Infant Free School Meals and Breakfasts is not protected and therefore uncertain into the future. Opportunities to add value to the core service, thorough links to the curriculum and public health should be seized and built into the package of services offered.


This seminar brings together speakers from facilities management, catering and cleaning and the organisations that impact on them to chart the future and highlight some of the many challenges facing service providers. The two days are crafted to give delegates the opportunity to refresh their knowledge, learn new skills and give practical advice on implementing some exciting new ideas back in the workplace.

 

Who should attend?

This unique seminar is designed to give service directors, managers, elected members and trade union representatives in the service areas of catering, cleaning, facilities management the opportunity to gain knowledge from experts in the sectors and to discuss strategic and policy issues with colleagues.
