Business lobby group, the CBI, has set

With a good education and the right

skills, everyone has the best chance to

get a job and get on in their career.

The CBI's new report, In perfect harmony,

calls on businesses, the government and

learning providers to take a fresh

approach to skills in 2018. 28 skills

reforms in the last 30 years have

providers and failed to deliver on skills


To design a stable national framework for

skills, the report urges policy makers,

businesses and providers to collaborate -

based on the government acting as a

regulator - to create an effective market

where supply and demand for skills

match. The current reform programme

can only meet skills needs if government

ensures it reflects businesses' views on

new T-Levels, apprenticeship reforms

and the National Retraining Partnership.
