NW FE Facilities Management Network growth

The FE Facilities Management Network (FEFMN) took place at Procurement House earlier in February and attendance continues to grow with every meeting.

Supported by CPL Learning, this networking group is open to any Facilities and Estates Management Professionals and its purpose to drive performance excellence and advance education within Estates and Facilities Management.

It offers an excellent opportunity to come together and share information, learning experiences, knowledge, and best practice, with many delegates attending in person with others join online via MS Teams.

Chair of the NW FEFMN group Brian Sheard from Wigan and Leigh College said, “I’m delighted attendance is continuing to grow because the FEFMN is a brilliant opportunity to come together and ultimately learn from one other. Through discussing those common themes that affect all of our day-to-day roles, this networking group not only helps keep you up to date with the latest changes in procurement but also share best practice within the sector. It’s great the CPL Group is helping facilitate and support the work of the FEFMN and my message to anyone who works in FE Facilities and Estates Management is to come along to the next meeting in your region, whether it's in person or via MS Teams, because you will see the benefits simply by getting involved“.

Every FEFMN meeting is listed via the CPL Eventbrite page, which includes joining instructions and advertised via the CPL Group Social Media channels, so make sure you are follow the CPL Group to keep up-to-date.

The Group also plans to roll out these networking groups nationwide in the future, so if you would like to express an interest in joining either current or future groups then please contact CPL Learning to find out more.
