Cross-party coalition of parliamentarians devoted to raising the profile of skills and employment policy. Brings together Parliament, employers, and the skills sector to ensure that skills policy promotes social mobility, lifelong learning opportunities and local economic growth.

Note: All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal, cross-party groups formed by MPs and Members of the House of Lords who share a common interest in a particular policy area, region or country. APPGs have no official status within Parliament.
