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.
