Building a successful future for local authority FM, Catering and Cleaning
A major two-day seminar at the York Marriott
Thursday 28 and Friday 29 January 2016
The pace of change never slows and local authority suppliers of FM, catering and cleaning services have to constantly adapt to the changing landscape.
The Prime Minister has signalled an aim that all schools in England will become Academies or Free schools by 2020. 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 should be a confident driver of efficiency rather than a casualty.
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 in 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 2 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.
