What is the UK Commission for Employment and Skills?


UKCES EIF logoThe UK Commission for Employment and Skills is a publicly funded, industry-led organisation providing strategic leadership on skills and employment issues in the four home nations of the UK.

Its mission is to work with and through its partners to secure a greater commitment to invest in the skills of people to drive enterprise, jobs and growth.

The Employer Investment Fund aims to:

  • Stimulate leadership from the bottom up to significantly raise employer ambition
  • Drive innovation, change employer behaviours and develop new ways of working
  • Secure momentum from employers to support sustainable increases in skills levels and better use of skills across sectors
