The Skills Series
The skills journey taken by six industry leaders
About the event
A major issue in the UK is low interest in lifelong learning - 49% of adults who leave compulsory education have never studied again, not even informally.
We want to encourage a more positive attitude towards continuous education, learning and development.
We take a deep dive into the skills journey and career insights from a diverse range of industry leaders. Their attitude toward learning will blow you away.
If you’re a career-seeker or thinking about a career change, you don’t want to miss these insights.
