Employment and Skills Convention 2022

Expanding opportunity, meeting demand

Thursday 17 November | The Eastside Rooms, Birmingham

Seismic shifts have been altering the way we work. Recently, Brexit, Covid and the war in Ukraine have accelerated gaps, inequalities and wage crunches. People have been leaving the labour market altogether, creating an additional shortage of one million workers compared to pre-pandemic trends. How can we better meet changing skills demands and reverse the rise in economic inactivity? And how can we grow our way out of the current challenges, creating a high skill high wage economy?  

Our annual Employment and Skills Convention will bring together politicians, policy makers and practitioners from across the employment and skills sectors to explore the biggest labour market challenges of our time. We will explore the future of work and skills, tackling youth unemployment and inequality in access to work, and the role of devolution and local leadership in creating opportunities.
