NOCN sponsoring and supporting the Learning and Work Institute’s third Youth Commission report
Posted 26 June 2019
What are the likely future changes in demographics and the labour market, and the implications of these on employment and education outcomes for young people?
Today, the Learning and Work Institute is launching its third report ‘Tomorrow’s World: future of the labour market’ which investigates the changes in demographics and labour market opportunities for young people as upskilling and retraining becomes an essential part of career development.
NOCN’s Managing Director, Graham Hasting-Evans, has been involved in the meetings and debates in the lead up to the report after joining the Advisory Group of the Youth Commission in July 2018. Using his vast experience within the education sector, Graham has contributed to the recommendations for improving education and employment prospects for young people within the report, and how support and advice services can adapt to drive a sustainable and productive workforce.
“As a leading education and skills charity, focused on helping learners and apprentices to reach their potential, we are delighted to be able to support this research. If the UK is to tackle the inequalities in education and skills; driving an economy which is sustainable and inclusive, we need to address the five key challenges for 16-24 year olds as set out in this Report of the Youth Commission. This is a great start.”
