The Skills and Employment Survey (SES) is a survey series which can be traced back to the mid-1980s. It provides information for academics and policy makers looking at working life in Britain today and provides insights into how the situation has changed over time. The 2017 version of the survey (SES2017) was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), Cardiff University and the Department for Education (DfE) with the Welsh Government providing additional funding for a Welsh boost.
