14:00 - 15:00
Our keynote speakers: Mims Davies MP, Minister for Employment, Department for Work and Pensions will join Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham and Lord Jim O’Neill, vice-chair of the Northern Powerhouse Partnership.
The UK has reached record high employment, but big challenges remain. Not all communities have from the growth, and too many people are still not able to achieve their potential in learning and work. In recent years we have seen radical reform to skills and employment policy, and in the coming decade, we will see transformational change in the world of work.
With a new government committed to levelling up skills and prosperity across the UK, the Employment and Skills Convention 2020 will explore the challenges and opportunities we face.
Now in its 21st year, attendees will have the chance to hear from leading policymakers, take part in engaging workshops, and share best practice.
