Author: Chloe Smith, Updated: 22 January 2021 13:26

Yesterday, the Government launched the new Skills for Jobs White Paper, setting out the landmark reforms that will deliver to revolutionise post-16 education and reshape the training landscape to help our country build back better.
As we recover from the pandemic, it is essential that everyone, no matter their circumstance or background, should have the opportunity to develop the skills they need to secure a good job.
As MP, ensuring that Norwich children have the best possible start in life is one of my priorities. The Skills for Jobs White Paper demonstrates the ambition to deliver a first-class further and technical education system on par with world-leading universities, and by enshrining the Lifetime Skills Guarantee. The Government are setting out the blueprint for a post-16 education system that will give everyone the opportunity to gain the skills and training that our city needs.
