AELPs vision for a sustainable skills system

The Association of Employment and Learning Providers (AELP) published its vision for a sustainable skills system, Skills Means Growth.

AELP has already set out a number of short-term proposals to address major issues in the skills sector – including a significant rise in apprenticeship funding. However, with a General Election on the horizon, AELP has outlined more details of how it believes any future government should reform the skills system.
