About the UK Commission for Employment and Skills

The UK Commission for Employment and Skills is a publicly funded, industry-led organisation that offers guidance on skills and employment issues in the UK.

We are led by a group of Commissioners who are all leaders in their fields. They represent large and small employers, the public, private and voluntary sectors and further and higher education. Together, they guide our work and provide expert opinion and advice.

Our main responsibilities are:

  • giving businesses and people advice on the labour market so they can make informed decisions
  • carrying out employment and skills policies to develop a workforce that can compete internationally
  • helping more employers invest in their employees’ skills

You can explore our areas of work using the categories here on this blog.
