Skills Escalator Report

This report presents findings from our evaluation of the Skills Escalator pilot.  Commissioned by the West London Alliance, the Skills Escalator is an innovative pilot designed to support working people on low household incomes to gain better-paid and more stable employment through a programme of personalised advice and skills acquisition.  The report presents evaluation findings from the two-year pilot phase in Hounslow and Harrow, including whether, how and why the pilot was effective in improving earnings for working people.  We also make recommendations for the design and delivery of in-work progression support.
