The purpose of the Education Taskforce is to develop, test and promote the practical steps that businesses should take to ensure that:
- employers are partnering with schools to support young people from lower socioeconomic backgrounds utilising proven models
- all young people have the skills and experiences they need to thrive as the world of work is transformed
- employers are taking steps to improve access to opportunities and employment for young people from lower socio-economic backgrounds.
As Education Taskforce members build their collective knowledge and experience in these areas, they will also lead the development of new campaign areas to drive change at scale.
