COVID-19 update: Wood Science Exams & Tutorials

Our Wood Science Certificate Examination scheduled for May will now be postponed. At present, we do not have exact dates for new Exams, since the situation is still fluid: but it is anticipated that we will now be holding TWO Exams - one in September and one in November (dates TBA); with delegates then being given a choice of which date best suits them.

In the meantime, group tutorials will still go ahead, but will be conducted remotely using videoconferencing.

Woodexperts recognised in the Parliamentary Review

Jim Coulson and Jan Antonovics from Woodexperts attended the evening launch of the new 2019 edition of the Parliamentary Review on Wednesday 4th September at the Houses of Parliament - the very same evening that history was being made: when the Commons passed the law prohibiting Boris Johnson from instigating a No-Deal Brexit.

Jim had written an article for the magazine (see link below) stating his own Remain preference; but also strongly criticising all governments of whichever stripe, from Margaret Thatcher in 1979 onwards, for failing to have any coherent policy on providing funding for Education and Training in the Wood Industries during the past 4 decades.

Co-chaired by Lord Blunkett and Lord Eric Pickles, The Parliamentary Review is a bastion of political insight which serves as an indispensable guide to industry best practice. This analysis is communicated across a variety of editions, each of which covers a single UK policy sector; these include but are not limited to finance, education, environment, healthcare, manufacturing and technology.

Success for businesses of any size does not always come easily, and this year's edition of The Parliamentary Review is indispensable for anyone who seeks to make a name for themselves in industry. It highlights significant developments and concerns for business leaders up and down the country.

The co-chairman of The Parliamentary Review, Lord Pickles, has praised the upcoming Review as one of the most comprehensive yet. He commented that as Britain undergoes changes, it is “essential that politicians have a firm understanding of the challenges with which British organisations must contend” and that The Review once again provides a perfect platform for this.

Writing in The Review, The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, Michael Gove says “this year’s Parliamentary review comes at a momentous time for parliament, as we collectively determine the destiny of the United Kingdom.”

The best practice article for Woodexperts can be viewed here:


One of the guest speakers was political journalist and TV presenter Andrew Neil; who adroitly summed up the state of chaos happening in the very place where we were gathered. And, when asked if an election was very likely, he said, "Definitely"; but when asked who would win, he said, "I can't tell you: I'm only a Political Commentator".
