Abstract

This report focuses on how universities and employers can work together to develop higher level skills. It includes reasons why universities and employers should work together to develop new ways for people to develop higher level skills. It includes examples of ways in which collaborative partnerships have been created, and promotes the need for more partnerships in order to develop a wider range of methods to allow graduates and existing employees to develop higher level skills. Twelve case studies are included looking at current collaborations in the UK, examining how they have been created and how those involved have benefited. The case studies cover six industrial sectors: advanced manufacturing, construction, creative and digital, energy, information technology, and life sciences.
