Specialisation & innovationwhat is it all about?
  • Supporting FE to become a provider of Innovation as well as skills

  • We want to unlock the talent of more specialist providers to deliver business innovation through knowledge and technology transfer
  • Training Quality Standard accredited providers and National Skills Academies are well placed to lead the way
  • Specialist networks can accelerate this process by transferring knowledge about best practice between their provider members
