May saw our first in-person Skills Builder Partnership Day for three years. It was fantastic to meet so many of our 800 partners, to hear inspiring examples of how they are using and building on the Skills Builder approach, and to share our ambition to collectively deliver 10 million high quality opportunities to boost essential skills by 2025. I hope that the Partnership feels re-energised for the next year!
We even had some guest appearances from international partners in India and the Czech Republic, as well as virtual attendees from some of the other ten countries currently using the Skills Builder approach.
Thanks go to our many brilliant speakers, as well as all of the partners who shared their experience, insights and ideas in workshops. Thanks too to Allen & Overy for hosting us so generously.
It was a day where our mission to ensure that everyone builds the essential skills to succeed felt entirely within our reach.
