This report explores the concept of employer ownership of skills from the different perspectives of government and employers; and what the implications of a shift towards greater employer ownership within skills policy might actually be for the various parties involved.

Written by Professor Ewart Keep of the Centre on Skills, Knowledge & Organisational Performance at Oxford University, the report sets out a range of practical and conceptual questions about the broad concept of employer ownership of skills, with the hope of stimulating debate on these issues and helping employers and those who represent them to think through how they want employer ownership and wider skills policy to evolve in the coming years.
