City and Guilds have published their latest report, Sense & Instability 2019 which calls on government to rethink how skills and education policy is designed and delivered.

The report calls for the creation of a new independent body to oversee the development and implementation of skills and education policy in the UK. Their findings show that ‘important lessons from the implementation of skills policy over several decades have not been learned, meaning badly-needed training and education programmes are not fit for purpose or delivering the right results for people, businesses and the economy.

Unless this situation is improved, the consequences could be devastating not only to the UK’s economic success and productivity, but also the Government’s attempts to foster better social mobility.’
