Access to the new Working Futures projections

The Working Futures 2017-2027 projections, produced by the IER in collaboration with Cambridge Econometrics, were published by the Department for Education in February 2020.

The IER has now created a new web portal from which all the reports plus all the Excel workbooks containing the projections for UK nations and regions and Local Enterprise Partnerships within England can be downloaded.

Forecasts were created when it was expected there would be a negotiated Brexit and before the Covid-19 pandemic, which has resulted in considerable disruption to the UK and the world economic system.

Report on better using skills in the workplace

Leeds market

A new report examining skill utilisation has been co-authored by Chris Warhurst with the OECD. It includes inputs from Peter Dickinson, also of IER. Focusing on the Leeds City Region in the UK, it reviews the different definitions and measures of skills use in workplaces. It shows why skill use matters for local development policies and outlines a set of measures for Leeds and other regions wanting to support better skill use.

The report can be found here.
