Dr Neil Bentley, Chief Executive, WorldSkills UK said:  

“WorldSkills UK welcomes the focus on skills in the industrial strategy to boost productivity and competitiveness. The message was loud and clear about needing more engineers, more technicians and more digital experts in areas such as driverless vehicles, life sciences, artificial intelligence and new infrastructure. Making a success of these exciting opportunities means we will need to engage more young people to help them develop their careers and skills to world-class levels. Businesses, education and governments get this, which is why many are already working with WorldSkills UK. Investing in young people now to be able to help the UK compete internationally is the key to our future industrial success.”
