We are very excited to have Professor Ewart Keep coming to present the Fifteenth iCeGS Annual Lecture on Wednesday 12 December 2012. The title of the lecture is, ‘Youth Transitions From Learning to Earning – problems with information, incentives and labour market structure’.
The Lecture will start at 2.00 pm and will be followed by drinks and informal networking (registration from 1.30, Lecture 2.00-4.00pm including questions).
Professor Ewart Keep is Deputy Director of the ESRC Centre on Skills, Knowledge and Organisational Performance, and is based at the School of Social Sciences, Cardiff University. (See some of his publications which I have found useful in my research).
He has a first degree in modern history (London) and a PhD in industrial relations (Warwick). He has been a full-time researcher on education, training and skills for 26 years, and has written extensively on lifelong learning, apprenticeships, the incentives to learn, employers’ attitudes towards skills and training, and the formulation and implementation of UK skills policy. He has advised parliamentary committees at Westminster and Holyrood, and is a member of the Scottish Funding Council’s skills committee. He has also acted as a consultant to H M Treasury, the Cabinet Office, SSDA, National Skills Task Force, UKCES, NAO, DfES, DIUS, DBIS and the governments of Australia, Queensland, New South Wales and New Zealand.
