21st Century Schools Programme – Cardiff
It is clear to most people in Wales that the public sector is facing enormous financial pressures and it is unlikely that these issues will be addressed in the short to medium term.
For those involved in the planning, design and delivery of new schools the need to provide better performing buildings at lower costs is clear. It is against this backdrop that Constructing Excellence in Wales has been appointed by the Welsh Government to take forward a programme of work in support of the C21st Schools Programme to maximise the impact and value of the investment.
CEW will be focusing specifically on optimising school design, procurement and overall delivery so that greater value can be gained from this investment both in Band A and in preparation for Band B. Clearly engagement across both public and private sectors in Wales will be critical to delivering greater value for money. At a Public Sector Forum in November we engaged with local government in Wales to set out our approach and to seek their support and input. In January and February we will be extending this engagement to private sector businesses.
For those who are involved in the planning, design, construction and operation of new schools in Wales these are “must attend” events as they represent the first opportunity for the private sector to influence the development of school buildings across Wales for the next 8-10 years.
An agenda and further information will be provided in due course.
Non-attendance by any registered delegate will be charged £30 unless you have informed us two working days before the event is due to take place.
How to Book: To reserve your place please email CEWales Events stating your full contact details and the names of all delegates wishing to attend. Substitution of delegates can be made at any time.
