Skills for Life Network

This new paper, published by NCFE and the Campaign for Learning, looks at the likely impact of the COVID-19 crisis on post-16 education, the economy and labour market, and outlines an action plan to address the consequences for jobs, apprenticeships, youth unemployment and adult retraining.

The paper warns of a “very different September” to the one the Department for Education and the Department for Work and Pensions planned for way back in January, requiring a “different mix of provision and financial support”. By September, the economy could be 15% smaller and unemployment 1.5m higher, reaching 2.75m.
