Evaluation of the Employer Ownership Pilot Round 2

IES is evaluating Round 2 of the Employer Ownership Pilots in partnership with Ipsos-MORI. This long-term evaluation (2014-2018) seeks to test whether giving employers direct access to public money, co-invested with their own, increases employer investment in skills or enables employers to demonstrate more effective ways to improve skills in the workforce than they can currently achieve through mainstream funding.

The evaluation has three components:

  1. a process and implementation evaluation,
  2. an impact evaluation,
  3. a value for money assessment.
