A Plan to Reshape our Economy: Pledge #5

23 October 2020


The upheaval has been felt by students just as much as employees, with the traditional supply of, and demand for, education being completely disrupted. It’s anticipated that increases in unemployment will increase the need for further education and upskilling, putting pressure on training providers. 

Our Pledge:

Training provision can meet the capacity and demand for a Greener, Fairer and Stronger recovery

Our Actions:

  • Adapt local skills and training provision to support recovery



Rapidly reconfiguring skills delivery.


Pledge stories:

Work to deliver this pledge has already begun. In their response to the pandemic, investment decisions and plans for the future, places, businesses, and organisations across the region are already reshaping towards a greener, fairer, stronger future.
