Seminar - Priorities for employability in Wales (22 Nov) Posted on 22/11/2017 00:00:00 This seminar takes place on 22 November in Cardiff and focuses on the priorities for employability support in Wales as the Welsh Government develops its Employability Delivery Plan ahead of it’s publication at the end of 2017. The plan will be underpinned by a new ‘Working Wales’ employability offer to be delivered from April 2019, consisting of three programmes focused on reshaping support for all ages, and for those both closer to and furthest from the labour market.

About the seminar

Delegates will consider the challenges for developing a cross-government approach to employability that addresses modern employment practices, and for building on existing commitments to create 100,000 apprenticeships and introduce employment and training hubs in areas of high deprivation.

Further sessions will assess priorities for ensuring effective support across all communities in Wales, including the role of the Valleys as a test bed, with jobs-growth the first priority in the Ministerial Taskforce for the Valley’s Our Valleys, Our Future action plan.

Attendees will also consider the implications of Brexit on the funding of services, with EU Structural Funds set to cease in April 2019, opportunities to improve careers services, and the wider priorities for further developing Wales’ skills system across further education, apprenticeships and lifelong learning.
