There has never been a busier time for those working across the Skills sector.

Faced with a recently published Skills White Paper, setting out reforms to post-16 technical education and training to support people to develop the skills needed to get good jobs and improve national productivity, as well as the more prominent challenge of reviewing measures taken now that will effectively transition the economy in future, there has never been a more important time to regroup, reset and look to the future of skills in the UK.

The combined forces of COVID-19, Brexit and a new Government have further highlighted skills gaps – especially digital skills and seen more people out of work than can be remembered in recent times. It has disrupted the delivery of employer-based training and examinations – and possibly will change the way we think about them for good. We’ve seen the rapid development of new initiatives to help employers increase job offerings – all of which must now be integrated into a burgeoning framework of offerings.

Together, it is our responsibility to create and prepare for the reset now that will shape the future workforce for the economic bounce-back post-COVID. Are you ready?

Bringing together policy makers and practitioners from across the spectrum of education, employment and government, join us to understand how we must regroup, reset and look to the future of skills in the UK. With a focus on what those across the sector can create and prepare now for the future workforce to ensure an effective economic bounceback, we’ll also examine the latest policy reforms and review best practice from those creating effective programmes of change.
