To complement your improved accreditation, we will be running a series of events for our ITMS community over the coming months, and would be interested to hear what topics you would like to see covered in these sessions.
Feedback from our previous roundtables in Edinburgh and Aberdeeen was that they were highly informative and would be useful to be held as a frequent event.
As a provider, we see you as a catalyst and influencer within the supply chain and encourage your participation with improved accreditation through this grant scheme.
