Ten workstreams are focussed on laying the foundation for the Institute to operate as a legal entity on day one (intended to be 1 April 2020).

One of these workstreams, Mobilising the New World, comprises seven working groups engaged in future-based thinking and activities which are intended to continue after the Institute comes into existence.

The timeline below indicates the broad milestones needed to create a fully functional institute by the end of the transition period in December 2022.

The Establishment Board and Unit, and subsequently the new Institute's Council and its staff, will take the time needed to ensure a smooth transition for learners, providers, and employers.
