Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Green Paper - Building our Industrial Strategy
14 April 2017
In January 2017, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) launched a consultation seeking views on its approach to building a modern industrial strategy. The consultation Building our industrial strategy ran until 17 April 2017. In its response to the consultation, NFER welcomed the pledge to address the structural and institutional changes necessary to address skills shortages in vital STEM subjects. It was also supportive of the vow to tackle the wide regional variations in access to high-quality basic and vocational skills and recognition of the importance of the needs of young people who do not go to university.
