Description

This tender seeks proposals by which the successful supplier will research and deliver a report focused on skills policy identifying the policy levers and initiatives that will support R&D intensive businesses in the UK to thrive and scale up.
The report will be used by policymakers to make a positive change in the post-16 skills policy ecosystem, by looking at the skills challenges and needs of R&D intensive businesses and offering potential solutions. It will cover two main areas: (1) the overarching skills needs of the R&D intensive businesses in the UK, and (2) a comparative qualitative assessment of how 3 to 5 other countries address these via different government levers.
The outcome of this research will be a list of policy recommendations which can be implemented by policymakers to address current shortfalls in the skills ecosystem and supercharge the UK’s R&D intensive businesses.

The response to the ITT should be emailed to georgina.navalles@ktn-uk.org before noon on the 4th November 2022.
Shortlisted suppliers will then be invited to pitch to KTN before a final decision is made. These pitches are expected to take place w/c 14th November online. A final decision is due to be made by 25th November.
