BIS performance indicators: skills

The input and impact indicators on skills as set out in our departmental business plan.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government



The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) business plan, which is updated on a monthly basis, sets out several indicators on skills. We chose these indicators to help the public to judge whether our policies and reforms are having the effect they want. They’re split into ‘input’ indicators on how public money is spent, and ‘impact’ indicators on the results we’re trying to achieve.
