Employer Engagement with Higher Education: Defining, Sustaining and Supporting Higher Skills Provision

This report summarises the findings from analysis of 27 case studies of HE-employer engagement initiatives, particularly those targeted at upskilling people in or entering the workforce. From examination of these cases it is concluded that the nature of HE-employer engagement is very diverse and that this diversity highlights the complexity of the higher skills market both in terms of the forms of engagement sought by employers as well as the variety of approaches from HEIs to meeting these needs.
