Nacro response to 2021 Queen’s Speech

In response to the 2021 Queen’s Speech, Nacro Chief Executive, Campbell Robb, commented: “We are pleased to see a focus on lifetime skills development in the Queen’s Speech today, which highlights the Government’s priorities for level 3 and above qualifications.
“However, adding ‘rocket fuel’ to higher level qualifications without addressing level 2 risks leaving behind those at lower levels of study, removing vital stepping stones into further education, training and the workforce for some of the hardest-to-reach young people.

“The Government must focus on all levels of study, including increasing high-quality level 2 qualifications and fuelling meaningful pathways for those who face multiple barriers to education from a young age.”
