Training and better work – What works in supporting progression from low pay?

Wednesday 12 May | 10.00 – 11.00am

Hundreds of thousands of Londoners are stuck in low paid work.

Last year, we published research with the Social Mobility Commission and NIESR exploring the role of adult training in supporting progression from low pay.

This event, held as part of our Better Work Network, explored the findings of the research, highlighting what works in supporting low paid workers to progress to better quality and higher paid jobs, and the lessons for providers and policy-makers in the capital.
