Offsite Market Update: July 2021


Published 02nd Jul 21 - by naomi

We’re pleased to announce that we are industry partners of this year’s Offsite Expo, which will be held at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry on 21st and 22nd September. Our sector experts will be taking part in masterclasses on Training & Skills and Digital innovation, and attendees will also be able to check out our ‘Offsite for Everyone’ workshops focused on a range of job roles. We will be sharing registration links for these workshops over the next couple of weeks, but for now make sure you register for your free place at the conference here.

DfMA Overlay to the RIBA Plan of Work

A key project of our Offsite group this year, the new DfMA Overlay is coming along well, and has raised some interesting discussions. We’ll be launching the Overlay in a virtual conference with keynote speaker Mark Farmer and other expert panellists on the 15th September, so make a note in your diary and we will release the registration link soon.

Offsite training needs assessment

Another project for this year is updating the School’s Offsite training needs assessment, which we decided was in need of a refresh. The new assessment will be more similar to our Digital assessment, with descriptive maturity statements so learners can more easily benchmark their knowledge level. We hope to launch this in the next couple of months.
