Comprehensive Spending Review Update

As we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a strong interest in ensuring that the sector has the skills it needs to not only play a key part in our recovery but also to drive economic growth. This means, driving innovation, job creation, growth of the life sciences sector and how we ensure we have the right skills to prepare us for future incidents should be strong considerations. 

Detailed proposals are currently being worked up with industry and our skills partners. In addition to the ‘big theme ideas’ there are a number of proposed ‘quick wins’ which will help to keep the profile of the work high and deliver some short term skills solutions to support the sector and deliver increased productivity.
