@NOCNGroup will host a webinar on Tuesday 3rd November at 11:30am, as part of the organisations support of Lifelong Learning Week (2nd-6th November 2020). The webinar from NOCN Groups’ Managing Director Graham Hasting-Evans (@BACH_President) will focus on the importance of upskilling the nation’s work forces through adult education in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic and the Government’s recent Lifetime Skills Guarantee announcement.

The webinar will also reflect on the publication of the ‘Close the Gap’ report in 2019 from NOCN Group and City & Guilds which provided a proposed map for UK Technical & Skills Education and how increasing social mobility and productivity can only come from a culture of continuous lifelong learning.

Graham Hasting-Evans comments:

“We are proud to be supporting Lifelong Learning Week which couldn’t be more relevant or timely following the Government’s recent announcement on the Lifetime Skills Guarantee and increased recognition of the importance of upskilling the nation through adult education. Our webinar will discuss how we can align our training agenda with the skills required to ‘close the gap’, not just today but in the future and how we ensure a ‘never stop learning’ culture that is accessible to all.”

Lifelong Learning Week is an annual event, hosted by the Festival of Learning and is a celebration of the benefits of adult education for individuals, communities and employers. The week of activity will raise the profile of lifelong learning with key stakeholders and showcase the very best in adult learning.
