This paper is based on the insights, ideas and perspectives on directions in further education and training shared by the speakers at CMI’s Learning Provider Conference, held in London on 5 July 2016.
It also draws on comments from a reception at the House of Commons which followed the conference, marking the launch of new Trailblazer apprenticeship standards for Team Leaders and Operations Managers.
It examines the current state of education and training in the United Kingdom, including the role of Apprenticeships. It concludes that the skills landscape is going through significant change – which offers substantial opportunities to deliver employer-led training that can boost skills and performance.
