Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.

Full and productive employment, decent work for all women and  men and substantially reducing the proportion of youth not in employment, education or training (NEET) is a fundamental goal.

The SW region is but one part of the broader UK basic skills shortage. With the lowest literacy levels and second lowest numeracy levels out of OECD countries (2011) our 16-18 year olds need all the interventions our schools and colleges are setting up!

Share your stories of supporting young people into employment through learning.

The TUC also call for a fair and just transition to a sustainable future. Have you experience of balancing human rights with economic and environmental capital in your business or company?
