Skills Commission

Education & Skills

The Skills Commission is an independent body comprising leading figures from across the education sector that meets every month in Parliament to discuss important issues in skills, training and further education policy.

The Commission is chaired by Barry Sheerman MP. Commission members include parliamentarians from all the main parties, and highly experienced practitioners from across the skills sector.

With support from the Edge Foundation, Jisc, and the Skills & Education Group, the Commission carries out research and makes recommendations for skills policy reform. Recent research has explored specialisation in FE, Information Advice & Guidance (IAG) services; apprenticeships; and teacher training in vocational education.
