All Party Parliamentary Group for Skills, Careers and Employment: Transitions: How can government level up prosperity?
We are at a critical point in the recovery from Covid-19. While the vaccination programme rolls out and a tentative return to the office are causes for optimism, there are still significant unknowns for the future. Will the end of the Corona virus Job Retention Scheme cause the projected spike in unemployment? What will our new relationship with the European Union affect labour flows and skills shortages? What schemes could encourage investment from the excess personal savings ‘balloon’ and how can this be used to build back better?
Transitions: How can government level up prosperity? Event: 22 June 2021 at 2.00pm
In this event, our Chair Sir John Hayes will be joined by Stephen Timms MP to discuss the work of the Work and Pensions Select Committee. Questions will focus on:
• How can the Shared Prosperity Fund help to level up individual’s skills and careers?
• How can the Plan For Jobs and National Careers Service offer a complementary service for individual support?
• What is the appropriate role for government and businesses in promoting lifelong learning and reskilling to support career transitions?
