Wales Employment and Skills Board (WESB)
It provides the employer perspective to Welsh Government Ministers on employment and skills matters, with a view to ensuring delivery is better aligned to the needs of employers and individuals across Wales. The board was established as an independent advisory Board in 2008.
WESB is chaired by the Wales Commissioner to the UK Commission for Employment and Skills, and has broad employer representation from both the public and private sector. The Deputy Minister for Skills and Technology attends in an observer capacity. Meetings are held quarterly.
The core membership of WESB is comprised of the following:
- Chair: the Wales Commissioner for the UK Commission for Employment and Skills
- Employer representative bodies: the Confederation of British Industry (CBI), Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) and Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC)
- Wales TUC
- Employers from a broad range of sectors
- Welsh Government officials: Group Director of Skills, Higher Education and Lifelong Learning, Deputy Director, Employment and Skills, and Deputy Director, Strategic Policy, Department for Economy, Science and Transport (DES&T).
WESB also provides support to the Wales Commissioner in reflecting the policy issues, needs and priorities in Wales, and provides a mechanism for the Wales Commissioner to feed back to Welsh Government Ministers and other stakeholders on the work of the UK Commission for Employment and Skills.
