Dr Neil Bentley, Chief Executive, WorldSkills UK said:
“We welcome the publication of the Careers Strategy, which is vital for the futures of so many young people. The strategy sets out how we can help young people make the most-informed choices to help realise their full potential. A crucial part of this will be ensuring that more young people are inspired about the benefits of apprenticeships and technical careers. This will help us succeed in creating a home-grown, productive, highly-skilled skilled workforce that is able to maintain the economy’s competitiveness and continue to position the UK as a world-class destination for trade and investment. That’s why WorldSkills UK is developing both live and digital inspirational careers activities, including peer-to-peer careers role models, to give first-hand insights into technical careers and apprenticeships.”
