The Thames Skills Academy actively promotes a range of events and networking opportunities, discussion forums, working groups and seminars for its members, our partners and interested organisations.

Such events allow the TSA to share best practice across the sector as a community of like-minded members/ employers.  They provide just some of the ways in which we communicate regularly with our membership, and indeed, our potential membership, supporters and potential sponsors.
