The COVID-19 pandemic led to job loss for many adults. Some of these jobs will not be recovered, given the accelerated adoption of new technologies during the pandemic and changes in consumption habits and work preferences. There is an urgent need for adults to upskill and retrain in new jobs and sectors.

Adults who are lower-skilled or older are also much less likely to train than their peers.
