Project Description

The ageing of the workforce and longer working lives together with AI/other technological developments changing the nature of jobs, have spurred increasing interest in lifelong learning and (re)skilling to equip all people (especially older workers) to sustain and progress in employment in a changing labour market. The West Midlands region lags behind the England average on skills levels creating a pressing challenge for regional economic development. The devolution of the Adult Education Budget offers an opportunity to develop specific initiatives responsive to the area’s needs. This studentship considers how the local skills infrastructure responds to changing workforce and employers’ needs.
