The Skills Summit 2019

The UK is sleepwalking into a low paid, low skills and low productivity economy. Productivity levels are behind G7 nations and still below the levels of the financial crash.

The Government has recognised the severity of the problem and responded by releasing the UK Industry Strategy and additional consultations. These changes will deliver a new world-class technical education system, boost the number of those choosing apprenticeships and have a greater focus on the needs of employers.

Learn more about these fundamental changes and discuss the next steps for UK skills with over 150 policymakers and practitioners at the 8th annual Skills Summit.
