As united kingdom of great Britain leaves the EU, a number of changes will happen, could be good or bad, only the future will tell, however, next few years could see a huge difference.

Between now and 2022 something called ‘Brexit’ will happen

The number of children living in poverty it is likely to grow from 3.7 million today to more than 5 million by 2022.

UK GDP growth is expected to ease in 2017 mainly due to slower consumer spending as rising inflation squeezes household budget.

The Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr) predict that by 2022, apprenticeship completions will have contributed £3.4 billion a year to the economy through productivity gains.

Cedefop’s forecasts suggest that by 2023, more than 40% of 30 to 34 year olds will have high level qualifications and account for a significant percentage of the workforce.

The Office for National Statistics estimates that the UK population in 2025 will have risen to around 70 million.

By this point, a massive three million more jobs could have potentially been created in the UK, leading to a total of 37 million jobs.

Growth in financial services jobs will be lower than the average annual jobs growth rate, at just 0.2%.

The Future of united kingdom can change massively depending on the deal with 'Brexit'
