Back to news

Held on 9 November, this recent debate considered the implications of Brexit for access to suitably skilled workers for engineering businesses and the transport sector as a whole, and explored ideas about how to ensure the UK has the skills it needs in the sector in the post-Brexit era.

Overview

Access to suitably skilled workers is the single biggest HR issue facing businesses post-Brexit. Are concerns overstated about Brexit-related changes to the immigration rules exacerbating the existing skills gap? Or is it right to plan on the basis Brexit means that businesses will have to work even harder to address the skills gap?

We gathered representatives from business, education and public sector bodies and invited them to share their views and experiences. We have summarised our collective thinking in the following report: Solving the post-Brexit skills gap, 9 Nov 2017
