Detail

The Employer Investment Fund (EIF) was launched in 2011 by the UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES). It was established to encourage employers across the UK to invest more in raising the skills of their workforce. Between June 2011 and March 2012, EIF phase 1 provided around £5 million to deliver 14 projects, which engaged in a diverse range of activities.

This evidence report and executive summary look at the extent to which EIF phase 1 met its objectives, provides examples of good practice, the value for money of phase 1 investments and offers lessons on how sector bodies and their partners can effectively prepare for the transition beyond this investment model.
