MP welcomes skills retraining announcement

SHARE:

Residents across Copland are being offered the chance to retrain and find new, well-paid jobs as part of the Government’s new Lifetime Skills Guarantee.

The plans, unveiled by Prime Minister Boris Johnson in a speech today, and welcomed by Copeland’s MP, Trudy Harrison will provide adults in England without an A-Level or equivalent qualifications the opportunity to take up a free, fully-funded college course.

Alongside this, the government is also making higher education loans more flexible, allowing people to space out their study across their lifetimes and take more high-quality vocational courses.

Trudy, said: “This is an incredibly welcome announcement by the Prime Minister to develop a long-term plan to ensure that, as a result of our changing economy and the impact of the pandemic, people have the skills to find and create new and better jobs.”

As well as offering college courses from April, the Lifetime Skills Guarantee will make higher education loans more flexible, allowing young people to choose the length and type of course that is right for them.

There will also be more investment in college buildings and an £8 million commitment for digital skills boot camps; expanding successful pilots in Greater Manchester and the West Midlands and introducing programmes in four new locations.

In his speech on the Lifetime Skills Guarantee, the Prime Minister said he wants to give people the skills to find and create new and better jobs, adding that the government will help them get the skills they need, transforming the foundations of the skills system so everyone has the chance to train and retrain.
