Kate Green – 2021 Comments on Lifetime Skills Guarantee

The comments made by Kate Green, the Shadow Education Secretary, on 12 May 2021.

The Government’s skills promises are inconsistent and illogical, shutting out sectors where we already have a skills shortage.

The Conservatives have overseen a decade of decline with skills and training opportunities disappearing. This Queen’s Speech is a missed opportunity to deliver a bright future for young people across our country.

Labour’s is committed to helping every young person make a strong start to their working lives with quality training and employment opportunities ensuring they can develop the skills our economy needs.
