There are two interesting facts about the current UK job market. One is that the employment rate is at a record high since the early 1970s. The other is that the economic inactivity rate, i.e. those not seeking employment, is at a record low. It is clear that the UK is enjoying a golden period in employment at the moment, and there are many reasons why this could be.
Any economic stat of today usually goes together with mentions of Brexit like two pedals on a bicycle. However, this positive news instead focuses on the good work being done by local businesses, entrepreneurs, education programmes and workshop providers that enhance employability. One such contributor to a more attractive and skilled workforce is New Skills Academy, which is part of Be-a Education Limited.

A Special Word on Teens Unite
Teens Unite is a charity organisation that help young people suffering with cancer focus on what they can achieve rather than letting their diagnoses hold them back. New Skills Academy has teamed up with them to help provide the young people at the heart of their work with more opportunities. Young cancer suffers now have more workshops and learning materials at their disposal so they can too concentrate on their future and potential careers. Just another way that they are helping more people progress their careers today and in the future.
