Skills, Employment and Growth Conference: Harnessing the power of devolution to boost skills and employment
“We need to do more to support our young adults into quality jobs and help them gain world-class skills.” – Philip Hammond, Chancellor of the Exchequer
The announcement of T-Levels and investment in technical skills included in the 2017 budget represent the biggest ever shake-up of vocational training in the UK. The reforms come at a time when uncertainty surrounding Brexit threatens to have a major impact on the country’s skills base, employment levels and growth rate. Government policies, including the apprenticeship levy saw 2.4 million apprenticeships created in 2010-15 with a further 3 million expected by 2020. The ongoing devolution of powers to city regions in England will allow local authorities to provide innovative solutions to address skills shortages and boost regional growth.
Join us for the Skills, Employment and Growth Conference where leading experts will discuss the main issues that will shape the future of the UK’s economy and labour market.
