The discussion will
stimulate lively debate on the role of business in tackling worklessness and
re-skilling the unemployed. What are the roles of government, business and
civil society in ‘skilling up’ Britain? Where can partnerships be developed
between these three sectors for more effective delivery of training and
development to young people, the long term unemployed and hardest to reach
groups? What opportunities are there for technology in the re-skilling agenda?
How can enterprise zones be used to enable business to take a leading role in
skilling up local communities?
