AoC Warns of Skills Shortages and Economic Risk

The Association of Colleges has published an analysis of the costs of under-investment in skills called ‘Skill shortages and funding gaps‘. They say that the Government’s Industrial Strategy is likely to be significantly weakened, with skills shortages increasing and output reducing by at least £3.3 billion over the next five years, leaving young people much worse off if action isn’t taken quickly. See the article outlining their argument here.
