Event description

Description

Conservatives Party Conference 2017

Last year, the CBI’s annual report on education and skills warned that a record 69% of businesses were not confident there would be enough people to fill their high-skilled jobs in the future. Brexit poses a further challenge to meeting the skills needs of the economy, with a likely decrease in international mobility limiting the international talent pool that can be recruited from EU member states. In addition, the nature of skills and work is being revolutionised by a wave of automation and the advent of the so-called Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Join leading experts from politics and industry to ask what can be done to meet the multiple challenges facing business when it comes to the skills gap: how can policymakers develop a joined up approach across the DfE, BEIS, the Home Office and elsewhere? How can the workforce be prepared for the coming impact of Brexit, automation, and the continued march of globalisation? And what can be done to improve training, education and upskilling in a way that makes us competitive on the world stage?

Speakers:

Alan Mak MP - Chair, All-Party Parliamentary Group on the Fourth Industrial Revolution​

Margaret Burton - Partner, Global Immigration EY

Anthony Walker - Deputy CEO of Tech UK

Phoebe Griffith - Associate Director for Migration, Integration and Comunities at IPPR
