Sector Skills Councils

Sector Skills Councils

Each Sector Skills Council will agree priorities and targets with its employers and partners to address four key goals:

  • reducing skills gaps and shortages
  • improving productivity, business and public service performance
  • increasing opportunities to boost the skills and productivity of everyone in the sector’s workforce, including action on equal opportunities
  • improving learning supply, including apprenticeships, higher education and national occupational standards
