Areas of discussion

In the first session the Committee focuses on deficiencies in current skills policy and whether some age groups are more poorly supported than others, the decline in in-work training over recent years and how to address it, and the extent to which skills shortages are contributing to slow pay progression for younger workers.

The second session considers how government and employers can support longer working lives, how flexible working can contribute to older people working longer and how an increase in the number of older workers would affect young people in the workplace.
