Education, skills and productivity: commissioned research - Business, Innovation and Skills and Education Committees Contents

Education, skills and productivity

The Education Committee and the Business, Innovation and Skills Committee have agreed to carry out joint work on the contribution that education and skills make to productivity. In preparation for this work, the Committees jointly commissioned research from the National Institute of Economic and Social Research, which undertook a review of the literature on the main channels of influence by which education and skills appear to affect economic performance. The research compared the role played by education and training institutions, including schools, and the vocational systems in the following countries: United Kingdom; United States of America; France; and Germany. 

The research is published as an appendix to this Report.
