IPT Breakfast Meeting
The implementation of an industrial strategy is a real opportunity to tackle the current skills crisis affecting the UK. Access to skills has been a top issue for businesses; with more than two thirds of employers concerned they will not be able to find the skills they need in the UK. This breakfast meeting will: 
  • Discuss the types of skills businesses need, looking at both highly skilled and low skilled jobs 
  • Explore what role immigration has to play in filling the current skills shortage 
  • Examine how education and skills should be incorporated into the industrial strategy.
