Our system of technical education is not working for employers or for learners. We have a system that is difficult to navigate and qualifications that do not train people in the skills that employers are looking for.
We have teamed up with City & Guilds to produce a report looking into the issue of current and projected skills gaps in the UK. The report – People Power: Does the UK economy have the skilled people it needs for the future? – combines a survey of more than 1,000 C-Suite employers in the UK, with data and analysis of the British economy, to raise a number of important issues about skills challenges facing employers and how they can be tackled.
