NIACE and Inclusion are proposing ten practical policies which the next Government can and should implement in its first 100 days. Every policy will improve the lives of ten groups of people who are often excluded and disadvantaged in life and work.
NIACE and our strategic partner Inclusion, jointly congratulate Iain Duncan Smith on his reappointment as Secretary of State for Work and Pensions. We are committed to working closely with him to help deliver his core priorities over the course of this coming parliament.
1 in 6 UK adults struggles with literacy, 1 in 4 with numeracy, while many struggle with other life skills. Our work aims to build more integrated support, better local planning and delivery, taking forward the recommendations of our Family Learning Inquiry.
Despite high UK employment rates too many people are stuck on low pay or no pay, negatively impacting our economy. Our work explores how integrated support, a National Advancement Service and world class Apprenticeships can help.
The UK has skills deficits that are holding us back, but public investment has fallen by a third in five years. Our work looks at how the learning, skills and employment systems can achieve more with less - for individuals, employers and the tax payer.
We want a society where everyone has a chance to learn and achieve. Using our research and evidence, we challenge thinking, stimulate debate, advocate on behalf of learners and practitioners, so that everyone can benefit from lifelong learning.
