Skills scheme warning

20 Nov 2020

It’s been very satisfying to see the coverage roll in for an important piece of thought leadership from our client Totaljobs.

They partnered with think tank The Work Foundation on a report into the role of skills in tackling job insecurity in the context of COVID-19 and Brexit.

Through in-depth analysis of policy, historic trends and jobs data, the report revealed some of the challenges including how millions of low paid workers will struggle to access the Government’s new flagship Lifetime Skills Guarantee (LSG) when it launches next year. The report also sets out recommendations for employers and policymakers.

We launched the report this week and have secured over 45 pieces of coverage so far including some great broadcast hits on the likes of BBC Breakfast, Sky News and Radio 4’s Today programme.
