Claire Warnes comments on the Skills and Post-16 Education Bill

Commenting on the Skills and Post-16 Education Bill, which is due to be introduced to Parliament today, Claire Warnes, head of education, skills and productivity at KPMG UK, said:

“COVID-19 has deepened an already debilitating skills gap even further, with many adults displaced from their jobs and in need of support to reskill and upskill for new employment.

“It’s good to see the Government legislating to help remedy this gap and deliver more adult learning and training opportunities across England, but to respond to the immediate challenges arising from the pandemic, we need local civic leaders, businesses and education providers to swing into action quickly and start delivering long-term solutions in their areas.

“There is so much untapped talent out there and newly skilled and productive workforces will help level up communities and support our economy to recover.”
