Policy is an integral part of our work.  Through seminars, study tours and policy dialogue events, we create opportunity to share experience, lessons and good practice from the UK and explore important global priorities for skills and employability.  

We aim to create conversations around key issues in vocational education such as quality assurance, employer engagement and inclusion, and draw together stakeholders from different contexts and experiences to learn from each other and tackle the big issues.  Key to our work is highlighting innovative practice through visits and case studies.  

In the UK we seek to share international best practice by convening roundtable discussions and events on global topics such as the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals. Internationally we contribute to a series of events and discussions alongside partners from the UK skills sector.  We also undertake research and work in partnership to ensure that we have a strong ideological base for our work.
