Current policies hinder British workforceA new report, funded by the Economic & Social Research Council and drawing on the work of over 100 top researchers across the UK finds that current Government skills & innovations policies will not prepare the British workforce to hold its own in the future globalising world.

The report finds that efforts to improve skills levels are actually hindered by the "bewildering range of public bodies seeking to offer training opportunities".

The ESRC urges that new forms of intervention are needed if the UK is to stand any chance of becoming a high skills, knowledge-based economy that can continue to compete in the global economy.
