Government campaign launches to boost skills

This year millions of working adults are looking for new careers, as research shows 43% of employed adults want a career change in 2022 – even more than they did in 2021.

As the government launches the new ‘Skills for Life’ campaign to boost the nation’s skills, 72% of employed adults want to develop new skills related to their work in 2022, and 67% believe these would help them achieve their career goals, according to a new survey of 4,000 of the nation’s workers.

The survey marks the launch of the ‘Skills for Life’ campaign, which will support the great appetite amongst the working public for developing new work skills, helping people to unlock their potential and progress into jobs in sought after industries – with health and social care (17%), and IT and digital sectors (20%), coming out top.
