The UK is at the precipice of an endemic crisis in education poverty. While the pandemic has magnified social and economic fault lines across several areas it is our children and young adults; the very fabric of our future that are materially disrupted both socially and economically but also mentally. The digital revolution has already embarked on radically transforming the job market. There is therefore a discord between a new incoming workforce and the opportunities available.
