The pandemic has brought new challenges for young adults entering the workplace. There have been huge changes to the way students study, are assessed, and communicate which has in turn affected the skills they bring to the workplace. We recognise that because of this, new starters may need more support in place than usual when starting their role.
This session looked at the additional support that employers and training providers should offer to new hires affected by the pandemic. Including guest speakers Anne Bailey, CEO and Co-founder of Form the Future CIC, Debbie Longhurst, Business & Education Development Manager at Growth Works with Skills, Sean Allison, Managing Director at Not Going To Uni, and representatives from the awarding bodies AAT, ACCA, CIMA and ICAEW.
