The UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES) held an event with the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Inclusive Growth on Tuesday 3 March 215.
Attendees heard from Sir Charlie Mayfield (Chairman of UKCES and John Lewis Partnership), Liam Byrne MP (Shadow Minister for Universities, Science and Skills), Lord Baker of Dorking (former Conservative Education Secretary), and Lord Wrigglesworth (Treasurer of the Liberal Democrats).
The event highlighted that there is now a strong consensus around the skills and employment challenges to achieving inclusive growth. It is also apparent that we know and agree on some of the solutions. We now need courage, constancy and commitment from government, industry and trade unions to start working towards these solutions.
A number of key stakeholders have contributed their thoughts on how we can achieve and deliver growth through people over the next Parliament. These contributions are collated in this paper.
