This research guide aims to share a set of tools that SETAs can use to build their capabilities to conduct research that informs their skills planning processes. It introduces a new framework, design and methodology that can yield evidence that complements and adds to the quantitative data traditionally used for skills planning. Research using this guide will produce in-depth evidence to inform building of the partnerships and networks that are so critical to successful skills development.
