Data and Employer Engagement: In delivering the DfE-funded Local Skills Improvement Plan for Leicester & Leicestershire, East Midlands Chamber – through a Knowledge Transfer Partnership with a local university – took a novel approach to both gathering and presenting secondary and primary data sets. This session will explore the approach behind the creation of the new Collective Intelligence Skills Observatory, with a specific focus on the development of a new daily survey-based app used to engage a broader range of employers.


About the speakers:

Chris Hobson is the Director of Policy & Insight at East Midlands Chamber, where he leads on engagement with Government policy making and the development and provision of business-insight services to support better decision making. Dr Gareth Thomas, formerly of the Skills funding Agency, set up Skills and Employment Support Limited in 2014. The organisation supports a wide range of public and private sector partners to achieve their goals and ambitions in the skills and people development arena.
