Forging Futures : Building Higher Level Skills through Univeristy and Employer Collaboration

Forging Futures shows how universities and employers are building diverse and innovative collaborations across the UK to create alternative pathways into employment and through the labour market and opportunities for people to develop relevant and valuable higher level skills. Working with the UKCES and Universities UK, we considered what effective collaboration between universities and business looks like, and what stages are critical in building this relationship. Through case study examples of good practice collaboration Forging Futures outlines the reasons why universities and employers collaborate to develop alternative pathways to help people develop higher level skills; practically considers how successful examples of collaboration can be set up, delivered and sustained and promotes the need for increased collaboration of this kind, as a way of developing a broader range of pathways to employment and higher level skills.
