    How do we solve the skills crisis? #SkillsWorldLive Radio 4.1

    51:14

    Welcome back to a brand new season of the Skills World Live Radio Show! Thank you for sticking with the number one podcast in FE. In this episode, presenter, Tom Bewick, explores why we have a skills crisis in the UK and what can be done about it. After all, you can’t read a newspaper or switch on a news channel at the moment without one story or another about supply chain shortages, caused by not enough HGV drivers, abattoir workers and even bricklayers. The skills crisis comes at a time when various business lobby groups have been calling on government to relax immigration rules which will allow more overseas visas to be issued, now that the UK has ended unfettered immigration and free movement with the European Union. In our Head to Head segment this week Tom talks to the former Labour Treasury minister and chief economist at the Institute of Directors, Kitty Usher. He is joined by Viren Patel, the Open University’s business development director, who has teamed up with the IoD to produce the Annual Business Barometer — a handy snapshot of employer sentiment on workforce skills. In The Final Take this week, Tom talks to Baroness Fox of Buckley (Claire Fox) about the recent Battle of Ideas Festival in Westminister, organised by the Academy of Ideas; and her thoughts on the Skills Bill, which came back to the House of Lords this week at Report Stage. We're now taking a short break for the half term and will return with episode 2 of the new season on the 5 November!

    #SkillsWorldLive Radio Show on the road at Oldham College 3.17

    1:03:31

    To end Season 3 of the radio show, I was delighted when Alun Francis, the principal and chief executive of Oldham College invited us to record the last episode of the series at the campus business centre which has recently been constructed. It was a real pleasure to have such close involvement with the college staff teams and wider student community.The end result is a version of the show on tour, in front of a live audience. My panel included:~ Cllr Shaid Mushtaq, Cabinet Member for Education and Skills in Oldham~ Susanna Lawson, Co-founder, and CEO of OneFile~ Alun Francis, Oldham College’s PrincipalWith questions from:~ Natalia Chudy, Level 3 Law student~ Alexander Newton Hall, Level 3 Law student~ Matthew Taylor, Level 3 Uniformed Public Services (UPS) student~ Taylor Richardson, T Level Digital Production, Design and DevelopmentWhat was great about this recording was getting a real appreciation, in just one local community, for the transformative power of further education. For the fact that FAB’s members, working with college tutors, are delivering literally hundreds of great qualification courses that are giving real life chances to young people. It includes, of course, the new T-Levels that will feature more prominently in FE from September 2023.Crucially, we talked about the difficult issues in FE as well, like the fact equality and diversity debates need to move beyond the abstract and find more practical solutions.I want to thank FE News and everyone for your support on this digital journey. And, above all, to say to those who are considering transforming your own digital delivery: don’t let your desire for innovation and change be drowned out by those miserable sceptics, who, let’s be honest, don’t like to see too much innovation and change, particularly when it roundly exposes their own mediocrity.Season 4, with more innovations, will return in mid-October!
