Who We Are
What We Do
This exploratory piece of research, undertaken by the Institute of Employment Studies, draws together a wide range of evidence on the importance of skills for the self-employed. This is one of the most comprehensive reviews and syntheses undertaken in the UK of the evidence on the relationships between skills and self-employment. It provides an invaluable resource to inform policy in this area covering business start-up, support for the unemployed to become self-employed, enterprise education, and business growth.
