Information on City & Guilds Webinar – 2 November 2020
Issues surrounding the shape of a future workforce and the challenges of delivering appropriate skills are a key area of the 12 month consultation being run by the FED as part of our work to develop a long term plan and vision for Education. Many of our partner organisations are involved in highlighting these issues. Please note the following:
‘Let’s Get Britain Working Again‘ National webinar and report launch – 2 November 2020
Over the past two months City & Guilds Group have brought over 100 business leaders and policy makers from across the UK together to debate how to tackle the unemployment crisis, as well as how to equip the workforce with the skills to withstand the challenges of AI and Brexit.
Given this, City & Guilds Group are pleased to invite you to attend their virtual ‘Westminster’ webinar at 10am on November 2nd where they will be launching a report which presents the findings of the roadshows to an audience of national and regional policy makers, educationalists, journalists and employers.
As the impact of the pandemic on unemployment increases, the event will highlight that current Government skills funding and resource is not channelled in the right direction to meet the scale of the challenge we are facing or deliver on its levelling up agenda, as well as share proposed solutions from the regional roadshows.
With millions expected to join the unemployment lines over the coming months and years due to Covid-19 and millions more needing to retrain over the next decade because of the impact of Artificial Intelligence on the modern workplace – it has never been more urgent to get this right.
Rt Hon Anne Milton will be hosting the event as well as expected attendance from DWP and DfE Ministers. If you’re able to join, please click here to register for your place.
