NFER has published a research report that examines the impact of the apprenticeships reforms on SMEs and on young people, against the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic. Putting Apprenticeships to Work for Young People also considers to what extent the apprenticeship programme needs to be refocused in order to ensure that − as we continue to emerge from the pandemic − the apprenticeship system is working to support young people and SMEs.

It's interesting that there is no mention of disability or the Supported Apprenticeship flexibilities within the report.

The Conservative Party made a manifesto commitment in the 2019 General Election to develop a disability strategy which, in the words of the Prime Minister, needs to be the “most ambitious and transformative endeavour for disabled people in a generation.”

The Edge Foundation has published a Skills Shortage Bulletin tracking ongoing and emerging trends in the UK labour market. This edition includes a focus on green jobs and the digital sector, both of which have been at the centre of much of the discussion about future economic recovery.

ClearView Research have just released new research looking into the impact of COVID19 on youth employment and future prospects. They found that 35% of young people were experiencing mental health issues due to COVID19. The pandemic has resulted in a lot of negativity and pessimism about future prospects for young people and this, coupled with the isolation caused by lockdown, can make what is an already difficult situation even more challenging.
