This week, The Centre for Progressive Policy launched their report Skills for Inclusive Growth.

They launched the report at their Inclusive Growth Conference this week in a session on productivity, skills and the changing nature of work.

Skills are a key component of inclusive growth, ensuring people of all ages have the tools they need to navigate the challenges of a rapidly evolving labour market and connect to the economic opportunities this country has to offer. An effective skills system must be a critical part of helping to tackle inequality and deprivation, attract inward investment and drive productivity.

Yet devising an effective skills system in England seems to remain an elusive, perpetually distant goal. This is particularly evident in the breakdown in the relationship between work and prosperity.
