100 St John St, London, EC1M 4EH

The National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER) is leading a large-scale research programme to identify the essential employment skills people will need for work by 2035, funded by the Nuffield Foundation. We are formally launching the programme together with the second in a series of research papers, which will focus on how the scale and composition of the labour market is forecast to change by 2035, and the implications of these changes for the economy and for society.

The hybrid event will be held at the Nuffield Foundation in Central London, followed by a networking reception, as well as an option to watch and interact live online. We will be discussing how to ensure that the labour market is equipped with the required skills needed for the future and to provide a valuable networking opportunity.

Speakers include:

  • Anne Milton, Former Skills Minister (Chair)
  • Tim Gardam, Chief Executive, Nuffield Foundation
  • Anthony Harris, Head of Analysis, Department for Education Unit for Future Skills
  • Rob Tabb, Policy Lead: Employment and Skills, Liverpool City Region Combined Authority
  • Prof Rob Wilson, Institute for Employment Research, University of Warwick
  • Dr Heather Melville OBE, Senior Managing Director, Teneo and Chair of CMI Women, Chartered Management Institute

We will be announcing more speakers in the coming weeks, so please keep an eye out on our websites for any updates. Full details of The Skills Imperative 2035 research programme can be found here.

Your details may be shared with the Nuffield Foundation as our event partner but will not be shared with any other third party.
