Further education lobbying success: Skills 2030 report

23 May 2024

UCU has received some lobbying success for the further education (FE) sector, after an independent policy report, 'Skills 2030: Building A World-Class Skills System', has recommended that the government should deliver a new FE workforce strategy.

One of the report's recommendations, by the cross-party think-tank Policy Connect, is that the strategy should include a plan to increase the attractiveness of pay, contracts, and workload in the sector. It also recommends the introduction of a workload reduction taskforce for the sector.

You can read Policy Connect's report here and also read UCU's evidence to the inquiry here. For further information, contact UCU FE policy officer Rhianwen Roberts.
