How do we embed learning and skills in the workplace post Covid?

Going Beyond Logo

This presentation by Kerry Abel takes you through the issues caused by the industry's historic skills shortage and the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic.

It considers four areas for trade union involvement; 

- Workforce (development) planning
- Performance appraisals
- Fairness and equality
- Apprenticeships as a tool to structure training

The presentation asks key questions about whether employer sides are upholding their side of the bargain, uses detailed research to consider the reasons for the skills shortages and uses data from TSSA member surveys to demonstrate where training is and isn't taking place.
