Employer Ownership of Skills Fund
Skills for Care wants to hear from employers about how new employer led approaches to skills development can support your business to grow and compete.
The Employer Ownership of Skills Fund is available to all employers in England and is jointly overseen by UKCES, the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and the Department for Education.
Up to £250 million of public investment will be made available to business over the next two years, with the aim of improving the quality and sustainability of vocational skills that will allow businesses to grow and compete.
The UKCES are looking for proposals from employers that support the following key objectives:
- Increase the impact of work readiness, workforce development and Apprenticeships activity
- Employers are better able to secure the training they need by having the influence they require over quality and content and can shape training provision to meet their needs
- Collaboration amongst employers to address cross-sector or supply chain skills challenges is increased
- Employer leadership, commitment and investment in skills is increased, including the involvement of employers who do not have a track record of investing in skills.
