Skills and lifelong learning: employer views and public policy

Langue: EN

Posté par NSS UK

The UK skills system: how aligned are public policy and employer views of training provision?

Employers invest in training for a range of reasons but the primary motivation is to meet their current and future skills needs. Decisions over choice of training tend to be made primarily on the relevance of the provision. This underscores the fact that training providers need to concentrate on their offer if they are to meet employer needs. Currently employers are more likely to invest in training delivered by commercial organisations than by publicly funded ones.

This report explores three main areas:

  • trends and developments in UK skills policy
  • employer views on training
  • issues in realising an employer owned skills system

This report was commissioned as part of the Foresight Future of skills and lifelong learning project.
