Strong vocational skills are vital for economy and society
There has been real progress
But we are still treading water by international standards
The UK Commission is now investing in skills solutions. From 2012/13 we will no longer ‘core-fund’ Sector Skills Councils. Instead, we will buy, on behalf of government, ‘universal services’ and invest in new solutions through the Employer Investment Fund (EIF) and the Growth and Innovation Fund (GIF).
