Abstract: This paper considers models of employer engagement within different international approaches to sectoral skills development, focusing on examples from the UK, New Zealand, South Africa, Hong Kong, Singapore, the Netherlands and the USA. We outline four sectoral models of employer engagement, exploring what is expected from employers within these different models. Some of the challenges and implications of these different sectoral approaches to engaging employers and creating demand-led skills systems are discussed.
