Jessica Leigh Jones, Vice Chair and Steffan Edwards, Business Development Director to lead panel discussion on the priorities for the UK’s Semiconductor Strategy
Jessica, our Vice Chair and CEO for iungo Solutions and Steffan will join a panel of esteemed industry leaders and policymakers to deliver a series of seminars and panel discussions at a Westminster Business Forum policy conference to explore the UK’s Semiconductor industry.
Commenting on his participation at the flagship conference, Steffan Edwards, Business Development Director, WJEC, said: “The UK is home to growing number of organisations and businesses within the rapidly growing Semiconductor industry. Jessica and I look forward to exploring how awarding bodies and businesses can support growth in this key area, whilst also linking with wider national priorities such as levelling up and net zero.
‘Within our discussion, I will introduce our new suite of semiconductor qualifications, which will equip learners with the knowledge and skills to take advantage of these employment opportunities, and ensure that businesses have access to the highly skilled workforce they need.
‘Conferences such as these are extremely important as they allow us to present our ideas in an open forum, whilst also participating in constructive discussions and debate.”
