Welcome to Foundations Live 2022

What is Foundations Live?

Foundations Live is the annual event which celebrates and centralises all the best bits of the year-long Foundations scheme. It brings the industry together to create two events under one roof:

  • A professional business networking and trade event. An opportunity to meet new people, learn about the latest products and innovations and generate new business.
  • An interactive careers event for people of all ages from primary schools through to adults re-training. Schools, colleges and training providers from across the region meet at Foundations Live to learn what the industry has to offer and how it will face the challenge of an ever-present skills shortage.


The annual event is the result of the collaborative and ongoing working relationship between Hobson & Porter, Jewson and Bishop Burton College. We are also pleased to be partnered by the CITB, who provide information about grants and fundraising to support the industry in developing the workforce – including apprenticeships.
