This report launched by the Minister for Skills and Science Julie James AM concludes the discussions, energetic debate and principal findings, and identifies key priorities for action from all five Policy Solutions seminars held over the summer of 2016 by ColegauCymru / CollegesWales, Learning and Work Institute and National Training Federation for Wales.
Our audience were Assembly Members from all parties, their staff and our wider stakeholders who are working in this space or would be affected by policy decisions. We encouraged participants to adopt a fresh mind-set about the real value of post-16 education, training and skills in creating a truly proﬁcient workforce for Wales.
The seminars focussed on five key issues:
1. Skilling Adults into Work
2. The Role of Post-16 Education in Tackling Poverty
3. The Value of Skills to the Economy
4. Welsh Language Skills for Work
5. Delivering World Class Apprenticeships in Wales
Completing the series of Policy Solutions seminars has been the catalyst for focussed discussion, however Welsh Government must now be instrumental in driving collaborative action to ensure that the post-16 education and training and skills sector truly achieves its potential for Wales.
