It is now recognised that effective management of support services is not only important to the success of an organisation but is also a complex task requiring a wide range of skills.

Facilities Management can be a valuable mechanism for change in service delivery, but the maximum benefits will only be achieved if those involved are fully trained to undertake the role. Moreover, their skills must be continually updated through appropriate training.

Facilities Management, Estates and Hotel Services TAGs were established in 1993 and they constantly strive to meet the training needs of staff enabling them to achieve the level of performance that is now expected. This is done by organising and facilitating conferences, courses, lectures, workshops and master classes for Senior-Managers, Managers and Supervisors, whilst also providing specialist technical training to a range of front line staff employed within Facilities. The TAGs also provide and exchange information and promote good practice in facilities management.

TAG MEMBERS are NHS staff who meet regularly to assess training requirements and then organize events to meet those needs. All conferences and courses organised over the past ten years or so have been very well supported and the feedback has been highly positive.
