This year’s Employability Day theme is Closing the Gaps.
We want to highlight the tireless efforts of organisations across the UK who help to close employment gaps by supporting disadvantaged people to enter, sustain or progress in work.
Despite record employment, there are still significant disparities between (and within) groups in terms of employment rates, pay and career progression.
Moreover, there are acute skills gaps in several sectors, including hospitality, communications, healthcare and construction.
Closing these gaps is important because it helps build an inclusive, productive and prosperous society where everyone has the chance to thrive.
So, let’s use this #EmpDay19 to show off your programmes and activities that help close the gaps in your local community and demonstrate the need for high quality employment support.
