Budget latest - high-quality skills are vital to delivering on ambitions
In today’s Budget, the Chancellor’s ambition for the UK to become a “science and tech superpower”, as well as his plans for growth and securing more inward investment highlight just how important high-quality skills are.
Dr Neil Bentley-Gockmann OBE, said:
“The Chancellor’s ambitions to make us a science and tech superpower and lead the way in new industries are to be applauded. As the international arm of the UK skills systems, WorldSkills UK will use our unique knowledge of global best practice to raise training standards in new tech skills across the UK to meet rapidly changing economic needs.
“To truly unlock the potential of the workforce and deliver on the levelling up agenda, we will work with partners across the UK to deliver a high-quality skills base to help secure more inward investment to create jobs and drive growth in all our regions and nations.”
