CEO at Learning and Work Institute - a leading independent think-tank, research and development organisation striving for learning, skills and employment which help people to realise their ambitions and talents.
For a long time, the UK economy has relied on large numbers of skilled and semi-skilled people from the EU and beyond. There are already signs that migration is falling, skills shortages are increasing and productivity is still stagnant.
Colleges are transformational – they help people make the most of their talents and ambitions and drive social mobility; they help businesses improve productivity and drive economic growth; they are rooted in and committed to their communities and drive tolerance and well-being. They are an essential part of England’s education system.
Fair funding for colleges will help more young people and adults, as well as businesses, get the skills they need. And we know that skills is very much on the Government agenda at the moment as our country faces widening skills shortages, even before the probable Brexit impact.
