UK Commission for Employment and Skills
WHO WE ARE
The UK Commission for Employment and Skills is a publicly funded, industry-led organisation providing strategic leadership on skills and employment issues in the four home nations of the UK.
Together, our Commissioners comprise a social partnership that includes CEOs of large and small employers across a wide range of sectors, trade unions and representatives from the Devolved Administrations.
Our mission is to work with and through our partners to secure a greater commitment to invest in the skills of people to drive enterprise, jobs and growth.
To achieve real impact, we believe that the skills agenda must be employer rather than government owned. Led by our 27 Commissioners, we work with partners across the UK to achieve our goals. Our unique perspective comes from the breadth and depth of experience and insight of our Commissioners.
We provide outstanding labour market intelligence that helps businesses and people make the right choices for them.
We publish major UK-wide employer surveys and detailed projections of employment and skills. We also provide data and analysis at local and sectoral levels.
We help businesses reach their growth potential by co-investing with employers in skills solutions that have real impact on jobs and growth. We believe that solutions that are employer-owned are most likely to succeed, unlocking greater value and opportunity for growth. To date we have co-invested over £600 million with employers to drive enterprise, create more and better jobs and boost economic growth.
