Kate Green – 2021 Comments on BCC’s Workplace Training Report

The comments made by Kate Green, the Shadow Education Secretary, on 5 May 2021.

A decade of Conservative cuts has weakened the foundations of our skills system, with training opportunities for adult learners disappearing and skills shortages opening up for businesses.

Enabling adults to gain new skills, retrain in new industries or to progress at work will be essential to securing our economy.

Labour is committed to enabling all adults to gain the skills they need to access the jobs of the future.
