The Skills Escalator was originally developed in conjunction with the Public Service Transformation Network as part of the West London Alliance (WLA) Whole Place Community Budget Programme (WPCBP). WLA members Harrow and Hounslow subsequently developed a partnership to test proof of concept. Rocket Science were engaged to provide interim management whilst a project manager was recruited. This primarily focused on engaging local employers in a pilot to enable working people on means tested benefits to increase their earning capability and progress in work in order to become self-supporting.
