The Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) is keen to make sure the Government’s wider skills offers continue to meet the needs of employers looking to develop their future talent; as well as individuals looking to progress in their careers.
The survey opens a series of questions seeking employers insight and observations on a number of issues.
Responses will help the Government to validate a ‘pulse check’ of what employers and stakeholders are thinking; as well as understand what is influencing business decisions on technical education topics.
There are a number of free-type boxes available throughout the survey and we encourage you to be open and honest in your responses. We would be grateful if employers, particularly SME’s, answer as many of the questions as possible, as they will inform future Ministerial submissions to DfE and HM Treasury.
The survey is open until February 28 2021. All individual responses are anonymised. Responses will be collated as a group under a Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire LEP identifier to indicate geography only.
