Developing an Employment and Skills Outcome Agreement

 

Employment and skills outcomes agreements are intended to provide a framework to align skills provision to better address the skills needs of local employers and residents. They provide a valuable opportunity for key players in a skills system to develop a joint understanding of these needs and the role they can play in addressing them.

Over the next 8 months, Shared Intelligence will be working closely with Central London Forward[1] (CLF) to develop this agreement. The health and social care sector (H&SC) has been selected as the focus of this agreement, given the numbers of residents employed in this sector across London and the importance of it in our daily lives.

The process of building a framework is as important as the framework itself. We have therefore started this collaborative journey with key people in the health and social care skills and employment system to develop this Prospectus for the Health and Social Care Sector. It presents the case for developing an outcome agreement and sets out how we, working closely with borough partners, key training providers and employers, and key stakeholders, propose to develop this agreement.

We encourage all of you who are involved in developing better outcomes for local residents to read the Prospectus and we welcome your thoughts and comments on the key questions proposed. This employment and skills outcome agreement is in the early stage of development. We therefore welcome insight, expertise and examples of best practice to improving employment and skills outcomes in this sector and in others. Please feel free to share this post and the Prospectus widely, and we encourage use of the comments box below to keep the conversation going!
