New report: Levy paying employer decisions and accounting for prior learning
Learning and Work Institute (L&W) was commissioned by the Department for Education (DfE) to conduct research to explore levy paying employers spending decisions, and to understand how employers and providers account for the prior learning of apprentices. The evidence will help to inform potential policy responses, to ensure high quality training for apprentices and value for money in the system. A copy of the full reporty can be found here

Getting in and getting on: Class, participation and job quality in the UK's Creative Industries
A report (led by nesta)
It was recently suggested that the pandemic poses ‘the biggest threat to the UK’s cultural infrastructure, institutions and workforce in a generation’ in an inquiry from the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) Select Committee into the impact of COVID-19. Safeguarding the sustainability of the sector and restoring its position as one of the UK economy’s greatest success stories is a critical priority. But while current focus is offering much needed aid to the sector and unlocking its potential to support the wider recovery, it is important too to consider how we can rebuild the Creative Industries and creative occupations for the better – in a way that benefits more people and places across the UK.
