Skills , Higher Education
The Lifelong Learning Bill, which aims to support more people to access high-quality courses that meet the skills needs of employers, will be rolled out in 2025. Naturally, modern universities have a vital role in forming the future skills landscape in the UK. The fireside chat will cover the skills that are needed for the workforce of the future, how to meet local skills needs and the relationship between employers and universities. In this session, we'll explore a recent report by MillionPlus, the Association for Modern Universities, on the importance of honing specific skills for the fifth industrial revolution, with a key focus on the role of Higher Education Institutions. We'll be discussing the national policy for the skills agenda, covering apprenticeships, the digital revolution and Lifelong Loan Entitlement (LLE).
