Sarah Smith and Alison Riggott, Walkgrove - Distance learning for the New Generation

There are major changes within and related to the professional driving profession ahead of us. Those need to be prepared and supported by vocational education and training in order to reach their full potential but also to avoid a further increase of already todays’ deficit of skilled workers in this field that belonged continuously to the Top Ten jobs employers are having difficulty filling with competent employees over the past decade.

It is, therefore, of major importance to think ahead of time and to develop a vision of this profession in order to get ready for the changes that are ahead of us. The consortium of the European project “FutureDRV” representing specialist organisations from Germany, Austria, France, Sweden, Hungary and the UK addresses this challenge in the upcoming three years of project work.

The FutureDRV consortium invites experts and stakeholders on professional driving and professional driver qualification for a first expert round table in order to give the FutureDRV project an initial impetus and direction for the upcoming project work by exchanging on:

  • trends and innovations within transport and their impact on professional drivers’ qualification
  • the future role and function of professional drivers within transport
  • opportunities and challenges of future training for professional drivers 

The project is funded through the ERASMUS+ programme of the European Commission.

Tactical Supply Wing - Providing Aviation Fuel to Battlefield Helicopters in a Contested, Degraded and Operationally Limited EnvironmentBook Now
Start Date:29/06/2017 13:30
End Date:29/06/2017 17:00
Event Code:DSC0320

When: Thursday 29th June from 1300 (for 1330) - 1700 hrs
Where: Tactical Supply Wing (TSW), MOD Stafford, Beaconside, Staffordshire ST18 0AQ

The TSW will host a Defence Forum event to offer CILT professionals the opportunity to learn more about how this specialist unit provides aviation fuel to battlefield helicopters. This unique organisation is one of the most heavily tasked, high readiness units within the UK’s Joint Helicopter Command and has seen almost continual operational service since its formation in 1970.

With a diverse range of capabilities, TSW builds and operates temporary storage sites, employs its fleet of cross-country tankers to transport fuel across the battlefield and conducts ‘Rotors Turning Refuels’ of helicopters. The unit is recognised as UK Defence’s subject matter experts in their field, and are specialists in activities such as parachuting fuel from C130s, flying it forward under-slung from helicopters or taking fuel direct from tactical aircraft such as the C130 Hercules into forward installations.

The event will include both static and live demonstrations, which will illustrate some of the equipment and capabilities the Wing employs, on exercise and operations. During these demonstrations, attendees will have the opportunity to interact with TSW personnel to ask questions regarding the equipment or procedures which the unit employs.  Delegates will hear from Commanding Officer, Wing Commander Jamie Miller, who will speak on TSW’s role as an Air Combat Service Support Unit, where they fit in to Defence and the challenges they face with the perceived change to the future operating environment. Specifically, the talk will outline how the Wing is planning to evolve its capabilities, both conceptually and physically in terms of desired changes to equipment. You will also hear about the support that TSW provides around the world to its diverse customers. He will also speak about how TSW’s capabilities are deployed to support Joint Helicopter Forces operating in a multitude of different austere locations, including desert, jungle and extreme cold weather environments. Subjects will include the levels of training that TSW personnel have to undertake in order to remain suitably qualified and experienced in refuelling helicopters in a combat environment.

The key to TSW’s effectiveness in meeting high readiness global deployed operations is its ability to prepare, generate and project personnel and equipment from MOD Stafford. Officer Commanding Headquarters Squadron will outline how TSW’s team of engineers, suppliers, drivers, administrators and training staff go about achieving this critical task.

With anecdotes from current and past operations, this will be a unique opportunity to hear first-hand accounts of recent developments.

Security restrictions apply to TSW and so delegates are required to provide full names, date of birth, nationality and if travelling by car, full vehicle details (make, model, colour and VRN) two weeks prior to the event. A form of photographic ID (passport or driving licence) will also be required on the day. As the visit will include an outdoor demonstration, warm/waterproof clothing is recommended.  

Refreshments and a light afternoon buffet will be provided.

The Sustainable Supply Chain - How do we reduce wastage and remain flexibleBook Now
Start Date:04/07/2017 10:00
End Date:04/07/2017 14:00
Event Code:COR0344

When: 4th July 2017, 09:30 (for 10:00) - 14:00
No 1 London Gateway, Stanford Le Hope, SS17 9DY

Can your business REDUCE WASTE through Supply Chain flexibility?

The economic cost of ‘supply chain’ food and drink waste is estimated at around £5 billion.
Leading retailers and their trading partners are now looking at reducing food and drink waste in the supply chain; highlighting how collaborative working can reduce waste. Waste is a by-product of an unhealthy supply chain, whether it be food, product, transport, or cost based. Waste is impossible to eliminate; however solutions are available to minimise it.

All businesses must also balance efficiency with contingency, and in today’s global supply chain we must ask how can we minimise waste and remain flexible.

Speakers from the Supply Chain, Retail, and Sustainability industries will discuss this topic in detail and how they see how supply chain solutions can reduce wastage and if these solutions can also maintain an agile supply chain.

The speakers:

1. Emile Naus, Partner and Technical Director, LCP Consulting
2. David Bateman, Group Managing Director, SH Pratt Group
3. Steve Malkin, Founder of The Planet Mark
4. Oliver Treneman, Park Development Director, DP World London Gateway

This event will showcase the ways in which companies can:

• Minimise waste
• Examine supply chain assets
• Identify best practice process and procedures
• Deliver commercial benefits that are embedded and sustainable
• Minimising empty transport journeys
• Contribute to environmental and commercial sustainability

By the end of the day you will have identified innovative ways to reduce wastage by changing elements within your supply chain.
This unique event will be held at DP World London Gateway, a state of the art deep sea container port and logistics park, where guests will also be able to go on a tour of the premises to view live operations and the latest developments.

Please note the delegate list for this event will be vetted by the host, DP World London Gateway, whose prerogative it is to accept or decline, without reason, a delegate’s attendance.
