City and Guilds

More skilled workers are “desperately needed” in the UK, and over reliance on academic institutions to train workers in fields like IT, engineering, and construction, can be eased by the revival of City and Guilds style skills training academies.

Despite the urgent need for a trained workforce in the UK, college funding and places have been declining, denying young people the opportunity to receive cutting edge training in multiple critical fields, from IT to engineering, and construction.

By bringing the private sector and the government together, support for the development of the next generation can be achieved and provision of the tools they need to succeed can be assured.
