Employability and Skills Wales 2018
Two decades of devolution: where next for employability and skills in Wales
2019 will mark twenty years of devolution in Wales. In that time Wales has benefited from billions of pounds of European investment but voted to leave the EU. Employment has remained strong but low paid jobs are still too prevalent and economic inactivity too high. There is an increasingly distinct skills system in place but still far too many people do not have the qualifications they need.
The Employability and Skills Convention will assess last two decades and look forward to the challenges of the next twenty years. It will consider what more we need to do to prepare young people for a rapidly changing world of work, how we can build ladders to help people progress out of low pay and what are the unsolved labour market challenges after two decades of devolution. It will look at the evidence of what works and offer insight and learning to help providers, policy makers and practitioners to improve how they work.
