Wales Employment & Skills Board
Why should I get involved?
To strengthen your voice on issues of importance in the business community in Wales, the Wales Employment and Skills Board (WESB) need to hear your concerns and ideas on employment and skills challenges facing businesses in Wales.
We have direct communication with, and provide advice to, Welsh Ministers on the employment and skills issues that affect you.
Our website is the main channel of communication between the Board, employers and stakeholders on current issues and topics impacting upon employment and skills.
Our advice and annual reports to Welsh Ministers can also be found here. There are also links to other useful sources of information relating to employment and skills.
We aim to:
- strengthen the employer voice on skills in Wales;
- help Wales to develop a high-skills economy with opportunities for everyone;
- give expert advice to Welsh Ministers.
The Welsh Government has now responded to the Board's most recent reports, 'Skills for Jobs: Priorities', 'High Performance Working' and 'Skills Policies and the Welsh Language'. Ministers welcomed our advice and provided detailed replies to our messages and recommendations.
