Steering Group

First Polymer Training Skillnet has a voluntary Steering group made up of top industry representatives, who give support and strategic direction to the network. They also approve significant operational decisions and review course design and development. The steering group is well placed to articulate industry needs, with the majority operating within the plastics industry. The group has many connections in the sector, which also greatly aids the dissemination of FPT’s services and activities.

FPT in hugely indebted to its steering group, whose support has been invaluable and a fundamental part of the networks success over the years.
