UK Skills: Key Themes, Policy Issues and Priorities

The Sector Skills Development Agency commissioned a partnership of IES and the Centre for Economic and Social Inclusion to conduct a review of UK employment and skills policies with a view to highlighting key themes, policy issues and priorities for the forthcoming UK Commission for Employment and Skills, which was set up by the government in response to the Leitch Review. The review reported in January 2008, based primarily on a literature and data review and dialogue with SSDA staff.
