Sophie Bailey, founder of The Edtech Podcast, said: ““I am delighted to collaborate with Ufi Charitable Trust to uncover the stories behind adult learning. How are employers and employees navigating the changing world of work and skills development, and training providers adapting to support it? Where are investors making moves? How are adults getting to grips with learning as they progress through life with all its myriad challenges and opportunities, and what does it mean to our self-worth to learn? I’m looking forward to getting as many people involved in that conversation as possible.”
