After a decade of poor economic performance, with fast growing international competitors, and massive disruption by new technologies, the UK urgently needs to upgrade its skills base.

The key questions are how to make such changes effective and how to introduce them rapidly and on a scale that will boost UK productivity and performance. Our expert panel will give their views and lead a discussion of what needs to be done.
