In partnership with
Dr Jessica Barnes
Jessica is a Senior Advisor in the Skills team, and her work in the team initially investigated ways to support learners to improve their maths and English skills, with a particular focus on students in further education colleges. She is currently working on how to support people in improving skills in a range of areas and to make decisions about learning and training opportunities, particularly in regard to STEM subjects and careers. Her other work has included helping to redesign services with the Department for Work and Pensions, and exploring how to improve gender equality.
