Local skills data: Workshops
In February and March 2013 The UK Commission for Employment and Skills held three local skills data dissemination workshops at venues across England in order to promote greater use of its range of labour market intelligence and data.
The UK Commission for Employment & Skills produces:
The workshops focused on:
- Introducing the design and methodology of the three sources of data
- Illustrating how they can be used
- Advising on how local partners can gain access to the data
- Enabling attendees to improve their skills in using UKCES data
The audience for these dissemination workshops were drawn from a wide range of local organisations involved in creating a better functioning labour market and economy, such as local authorities, local enterprise partnerships, FE colleges, universities, JCP, and chambers of commerce.
A copy of all presentations from the workshop (PDF, 3.4 Mb) is available to download.

Changing Behaviour in Skills Investment: New Research Seminar Series 2012
The UK Commission for Employment and Skills’ ambition is to raise skill levels to help drive enterprise, create more and better jobs and economic growth in the UK.

Intelligence was a monthly e-briefing which reported on key developments in the fields of employment and skills. Although the final edition of Intelligence was published in March 2012, its companion online archive remains open but will not be updated. This archive serves as a useful information resource, providing access to policy developments, research outputs and analyses in the areas of employment, learning and skills and the labour market over the past four years. From this archive you can browse content by subject, read specific issues or explore Spotlight articles which each month focused on a pertinent issue in employment and skills.
The UK Skills Convention 2010: Skills, Jobs, Growth
The UK Commission for Employment and Skills held a first major Policy Convention on 8 and 9 February 2010. This unique conference brought together national and international skills experts and leading thinkers. Day one focused on the global skills challenge and successful policy responses to that challenge from across the world. And day two interrogated the practical learning from this for future policy innovation in the UK.
Information from all the sessions - including videos, podcasts, presentation slides, documents, and blog posts, can still be viewed.
