Global fluency for our future workforce
Against the backdrop of Brexit, there has been an increased focus on international trade and attracting more inward investment.
There is an urgent need for a complementary skills narrative to support these global economic ambitions, but how can businesses develop young people’s world-class skills and mindset to help the UK attract this investment?
WorldSkills UK harnessed the views of leading employers and industry bodies including Toyota, Siemens and the CBI on achieving ‘global fluency’ and you can read the report here.
This year, we will be building on the outcomes of this report and discussing the skills issues facing businesses in a series of round table discussion. If you would like to be involved, do get in contact with WorldSkills UK.
