Good Practice Network

Welcome to the Good Practice Network. The Network enables organisations in our investment community to share best practice in order to maximise the success and impact of concepts and solutions we are collectively investing in.

The Best Practice Network aims to: encourage strategic investments in support of the most significant challenges faced by sectors and local areas; make smart investments so that we can collectively get the greatest leverage and value from the investments we are making; and make successful investments measured both by formal evaluation and impact studies and the flow of stories that help to make the case for skills. Together these will show how we have created the conditions for employer investment and ownership.

What does 'good' look like?
