World Skills UK Centre of Excellence Conference

UVAC is delighted to be a part of the WorldSkills UK Centre of Excellence- Network for Innovation, Workforce Skills Conference: Genomics, Bioinformatics, Health & Life Sciences on 7 and 8 March 2024, at the Wellcome Sanger Institute, Cambridge.

Dr Mandy Crawford-Lee, UVAC’s Chief Executive, will be delivering a workshop, as well as joining a panel celebrating International Women’s Day at this 2- day residential conference, in collaboration with the Wellcome Sanger Institute.

Rapid advancements in Science and Technology are changing the landscape in terms of how we work, learn, and live, and have the potential to bring unparalleled transformation to technical education and training. The UK Government has launched its Science and Technology Strategy and Framework, aiming to strengthen our scientific capabilities, to cement the UK’s position as a superpower in Science and Technology by 2030.

This conference aims to bring together policy makers, further and higher education senior leaders and managers, curriculum team leaders, and senior business support staff, employers, awarding organisations and key stakeholders, to provide the time and space for discussion, experimentation, knowledge exchange and transfer. It is ‘Time’ for pride in professionalism, and effective partnership working, to support the realisation of UK ambitions. UK Science is fully aligned to our health security mission, as we prioritise social, environmental, and economic sustainable development.
