MIGRATION - THE BENEFITS AND CHALLENGES
VALUING THE SKILLS AND SUPPORTING THE INTEGRATION OF NEW AND EMERGING 
COMMUNITIES
Mr Tony McNulty MP, will be talking about the government policy and 
Initiatives on Migrant Workers.

Wednesday 1 February 2006
Glazier Hall
9 Montague close
London Bridge
London SE1 9DD

The increased global mobility of workers, especially to and within the 
European Union, offers clear benefits to the UK economy. However, increased 
mobility presents challenges as well as opportunities at local and regional 
levels.  The challenges include identifying and providing for the specific 
needs of new arrivals, maintaining community cohesion and facilitating access 
to appropriate employment and learning opportunities.

This conference will explore these issues by:
- increasing awareness of the new patterns of migration to the UK
- examining how education, training  and employment opportunities can be 
developed to meet the needs of new and emerging communities
- demonstrating that effective partnership working can enhance integration and 
community cohesion  

The conference will be of interest to Local Government Association. Senior 
local authority officers, elected members, LA officers working on these 
issues. Lifelong learning development officers. LSC officers. Regional 
consortia. Regional government offices. Regional development agencies. Local 
strategic partnerships. FE colleges. Government departments. Housing 
associations. Sunrise pilots.
