Update to the bulletin sent out late last month. Mostly new FE College dates and a few more sixth form events.
A few of points to highlight:– Employer Skills Survey 2022, found fewer employers providing training and skill shortage vacancies growing. – 25 Years of University Access, confirms persistent access gaps for disadvantaged students. – Unit for Future Skills, DfE has spent £2.5 million on the unit delivering careers pathways and skills demand dashboards. In the Apprenticeships section vacancies in Central London show a decline from the post lockdown figure of 1,002 in September 2022, to 731 on 15 October 2023, below the pre-COVID 19 figure of 1,365 in March 2020.
