EPI and Core Cities at Lib Dem Party Conference: ‘Reskill, retrain, recover: What’s the Lib Dem plan for cities and regions?’

28th September 2020 9/28/20 13:00-13:50

At this year’s Liberal Democrat Party Conference the Education Policy Institute has partnered with Core Cities UK to co-host a virtual panel discussion on what regional education provision is needed for Covid recovery.

The Covid-19 pandemic has led to hundreds of thousands of job losses and has severely impacted providers of education and training. With a dismal economic forecast, education provision must be made for those due to enter the labour force and for those who have lost their livelihoods as they face limited employment options. To restart growth and level up economic prospects across the UK we need a skills strategy which works for all cities and regions and affords fresh opportunities for reskilling and retraining. This would support people to thrive and drive innovation – strengthening not only the economy in all cities but the UK’s place in on the global stage as a nation with world class businesses and impressive productivity.

The event will take place on the Liberal Democrat Party’s online platform on Monday 28th September 2020 from 13:00 – 13:50.

Speakers include: Daisy Cooper MP (Education Spokesperson and Deputy Leader); Andrew Carter (Centre for Cities); Chris Murray (Core Cities UK); and Verity Davidge, (Make UK). The panel will be chaired by David Laws (Education Policy Institute).
