A London First Skilling London Virtual Roundtable hosted by Collab Group

London’s labour market is significantly challenged; on the one hand unemployment remains stubbornly high and large numbers have become economically inactive since the pandemic. On the other, vacancies and demand for skills are reaching record levels. But there’s a skills mismatch which is making it hard for business to access the workers they need. Doubling down on reskilling training is critical as are strategies for unlocking all parts of London’s labour market to build a more robust pipeline of diverse talent to fill staff shortages. 

An effective two-way relationship between further education and business is necessary for tackling these challenges. This roundtable will bring business, education and policymakers together to look at what makes a good partnership, how they can make a real impact, and how good practice might be transferred and scaled to work across London’s key sectors.

Invitation only
