ESS 2017: The UK Employer Skills Survey has been published by the Department for Education

We’re delighted that the report for the flagship study, the UK Employer Skills Survey, has just been published by the Department for Education. This very large-scale study (comprising over 87,000 interviews with employers across the UK) provides the definitive picture on recruitment difficulties and skills gaps experienced by employers, the extent to which they train their staff in response, and overall employer investment in training.

We’re very proud that IFF has been the lead contractor and report author on all four occasions the study has been conducted (in 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2017).
