This programme is being delivered by the UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES) and is designed to test innovative approaches to placing employers in control of their training and skills needs and then providing the ability to procure support against these needs from the skills system. Both consortia of SMEs and large employers can apply.
What is the Employer Ownership of Skills pilot?
The Employer Ownership of Skills pilot gives all employers in England, irrespective of size or sector, the opportunity to access up to £340 million of public investment and jointly invest alongside Government to develop your current and future workforce. This will allow you to tackle skills challenges that may be holding your business back!
Opportunities to engage:
A series of 1-1 ‘surgery’ sessions will give a limited number of employers the opportunity to talk on a 1-1 basis with UKCES/BIS.
