Can higher education help solve the UK productivity problem?

15 December 2022 - Lunch meeting - Login for venue

Matt Western MP, Shadow Minister for Further Education and Universities

Compared with our major international competitors, the UK has a long-term and apparently intractable problem of relatively low productivity. This needs to be overcome to grow the economy and support the level of public services that we expect to enjoy. Matt Western MP, Shadow Minister for Further Education and Universities will lead a roundtable on ways to tackle the skills gap, the effectiveness of the apprenticeship levy and, overall, how we can harness higher education to solve the productivity puzzle.
