Skills for Jobs White Paper launched

Education Secretary Gavin Williamson has published the Skills for Jobs White Paper which contains landmark reforms that will transform post-16 education and training, boost skills and get more people into work.

The paper encapsulates the Prime Minister’s new Lifetime Skills Guarantee, setting out a blueprint for a post-16 education system that will ensure everyone can gain the skills they need to progress in work at any stage of their lives.

In addition, the White Paper identifies overhauling the funding and accountability rules, so funding is better targeted at supporting high-quality education and training that meets the needs of employers, and introducing new powers to intervene when colleges are failing to deliver good outcomes for the communities they serve.
