In the next online event of the Lifelong Education Commission, the Secretary of State for Education Gavin Williamson, will discuss the Government's White Paper 'Skills for jobs: lifelong learning for opportunity and growth'. 

The Rt. Hon. Chris Skidmore MP and Phillip Blond (Director, ResPublica) will join the Secretary of State to foster a conversation on key elements of the White Paper and how the Government's strategy will be implemented.

Key talking points:

- What are the main barriers to reforming the funding mechanism for lifelong learning?

- How can true flexibility be instilled in the system, especially in the age of remote learning?

- In what way can SMEs benefit from and have a greater role in the lifelong learning cycle?

- Why an emphasis on lifelong education is key to address inequalities and provide a better future to those who are left behind

- How lifelong education relates to the Levelling Up agenda and the turnaround of disadvantaged places.
The event will be online on Wednesday 26th May 2021 at 16.15 pm (London time).
