Between 2017/19, CollegesWales International received funding to explore the relationship between higher level skills and on economic resilience. This project was carried out in the wake of the 2008 global financial crisis. We looked at six regions in Europe which were similar in terms of economic resilience to Wales and how their educational and training systems reacted to the problems caused by the crisis. The final report Building a better Wales - Lessons from Europe was presented at the FE and Future Skills Cross Party Group in September 2019. The report, and its recommendations, are particularly relevant now in the post-Covid era.
