Brexit Skills Shortages to Get Worse

Former FE teacher explaining current and future situation

With losing access to easy access to skilled workers from the EU, Brexit created a necessity for the UK to invest properly in skills training. We could have done this as EU members, but it is essential outside the single market at least. However, far from boosting skills training in the UK, the government are actually removing funding for programmes that were already there. So we will have a greater need for skills but will actually have fewer found in our workforce.
