The government’s long-awaited FE White Paper has been published today.
NCG’s CEO Liz Bromley has responded, commenting: “NCG welcomes the White Paper’s focus on skills, jobs and opportunity, which reflects our mission of achieving social mobility through economic prosperity. As we seek to strengthen our Post-COVID, Post-Brexit economy and level up our country, there has never been a greater need to ensure that we deliver the skills our future requires and to make these available to everyone throughout their lifetime.
“All of our seven colleges are firmly rooted in the communities they serve and work closely with local employers to develop their curriculum and vocational offers, so we welcome the drive to place employers at the heart of the skills system.
“The challenge for all of us now – the sector, government and employers – is working together in a strategic and imaginative way to deliver on our shared goal of widening opportunity and increasing prosperity”.
