Competence in construction has been under increased scrutiny since the publication of the Hackitt Report in 2017 and the subsequent Setting the Bar report by the Competence Steering Group of the Construction Industry Council. 

All members of professional engineering institutions have an obligation to maintain their competence through continuing professional development, and to support the learning of others. This requirement is now being given even greater weight by key professional bodies such as the Institution of Civil Engineers, RIBA and the CIOB who have reviewed and in some cases strengthened their competency framework in the light of recent events.

It’s clear that there is a direct link between competence and error and GIRI’s goals include improving skills across the sector, and creating a culture and working environment to support people to get it right first time.

Our invited speakers will examine this relationship and consider best practice for improving competence in the context of error reduction, sharing knowledge and presenting case studies on this theme.

Confirmed speakers:

  • Clare Price, sector lead – built environment, BSi  The BSI competence standards framework and the role of new Standards in Building Safety policy.
  • Anthony Taylor, chair WG8 (BSM) Interim Chair Building Safety Alliance. Delivering competence, delivering assessment. 
  • Dawn Hillier, head of strategy for standards & qualifications, CITB. Developing competence frameworks for installers – What are the opportunities for GIRI training/resources?
  • Brendan van Rooyen, head of professional services, Institution of Civil EngineersICE's new continuing professional development framework.

Registration is now closed.
