Kate Green comments on the Government’s Skills for Jobs white paper

Kate Green MP, Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary, commenting on the Government’s Skills for Jobs white paper, said:

“After a decade of reducing opportunities, the Conservatives have finally acknowledged the importance of further education to individuals, employers, and our economy, but these measures will not reverse the damage of a decade of their incompetence.

“Labour has repeatedly said that giving people the ability to retrain and upskill is essential for securing our economy and rebuilding our country.

“But the reality is that millions of people need training opportunities now, not in a matter of months or years, and the Government must act urgently to get them the support they need.”
