Welcome to the sixth and final episode of our What Matters in Edtech series, supported by Bett. This series is all about the things that matter in education, and how and when tech might help.

Thank you to Pearson for sponsoring this week's episode. 

What's in this episode?

This episode was recorded LIVE at #Bett2020 and is all about skills. We take a top-level view of the skills agenda both here and internationally, looking into why there is a disconnect between education and skills requirements and where the UK stands on solving this issue compared to the rest of the world. We then drill into some of the vocational learning experiences which are attempting to take on the skills gap.
