One Regional Employability Framework Evaluation

  The North East’s Regional Employability Framework (REF) provided an over-arching strategic focus for partnership-working on employability across the region. This research had been commissioned by One NorthEast RDA and partners to: review the extent and effectiveness of REF partnership working within the region (in line with the Partnership’s own objectives and compared with best practice from elsewhere), in terms of alignment, influence and membership, and ‘Strategic Added Value’; identify the main challenges in strengthening partnership-working and promoting greater shared ownership among local stakeholders over the period to April 2010, and in ensuring alignment with the developing Integration of Employment and Skills agenda. The project is now completed and the final report has identified recommendations for good practice and future priorities for the region’s employability agenda. The final report can be found on http://www.skillsnortheast.co.uk .
