27 October 2021

Claire Tunley CEO, Financial Services Skills Commission comments:

“Today’s announcement on T-levels and an increase in skills investment is a positive step forward for employers and students. This will help to address the financial services sector’s growing skills gap and boost the much needed supply of technology and digital skills that are essential to the future success of the sector.”

“We are working with our members to increase and diversify the availability of skills. Our recently published Future Skills Framework supports firms to prioritise their future skills needs, and attract and deepen the pool of existing talent and expertise to ensure the UK remains globally competitive. We will continue to engage with Government, and key stakeholders to drive further progress forward on the UK financial services skills agenda.”
