Wellington-based supported employment and training charity Landau, which assists thousands of individuals each year to secure training and sustainable jobs, welcomed the Chancellor’s £3bn funding boost for skills and training.

Chief Executive Sonia Roberts said: “We are particularly pleased to see an additional £550m being invested in adult skills to support those without any qualifications beyond GCSE level.

“We’re currently working with a growing number of people who are out of work and need additional training to secure employment, so we’re hoping this funding will support the upskilling of these individuals and contribute towards lowering unemployment levels across the region but as always, we are yet to see the small print of the proposed funding plans and exactly what it will mean.”

Mrs Roberts also welcomed the Government’s plans to increase wages for the lowest paid employees and apprentices.

“We very much welcome the Government’s decision to increase national wages. We work with a lot of people who are in poverty and would say these rises are long overdue.

“However, we won’t yet know whether the measures will be enough to cover the rising costs that many families are set to face with increasing household bills and daily expenditure or whether more needs to be done by the Government.”
