Forging Futures: Building higher level skills through university and employer collaboration

This report shows how universities and employers are building diverse and innovative collaborations across the UK to create alternative pathways and opportunities for people to develop relevant and valuable higher-level skills. The report considers how effective collaboration is delivered and what the important stages are in this process.

Specifically, the report:

• outlines the reasons why universities and employers collaborate to develop alternative pathways to help people develop higher level skills, highlighting the benefits that can be gained by doing so;

• practically considers how successful examples of collaboration can be set up, delivered and sustained;

• promotes the need for increased collaboration of this kind, as a way of developing a broader range of pathways to employment and higher level skills;

• showcases 12 case studies, which explore the reasons for and benefits of collaboration for employers and universities in six industrial sectors (advanced manufacturing, construction, creative and digital, energy, IT and life sciences).
