NCG today responded to the Prime Minister’s speech on skills.
Liz Bromley, CEO of NCG commented:
“NCG welcomes the Prime Minister’s focus on skills and the role which FE can play in levelling up our country. For too long colleges have been the forgotten middle child of education. Today’s announcement links clearly to our own mission of creating social mobility, through economic prosperity. In particular we welcome this positive step forward for adult learners.
“Adult and lifelong learning have long been neglected in the realm of education policy. This lifetime guarantee will help to meet the combined challenges of technological change, Brexit and the post-COVID economic landscape that will shape the next few years.
“We look forward to working with the government to ensure that the expected FE White Paper delivers the same confidence and security to every learner, community and college in our country.”
