Upskilling a nation

It's been an interesting couple of days, working with a new client, the Alliance of Sector Skills Councils - a group of experienced and knowledgeable folk who manage the individual Skills Councils that cover about 85% of employers in the UK. A few types of business areas - Tattoo Parlours is one I think - have none.

The Alliance are in the process of setting in place the plans to accelerate the level of employer engagement on training provision to deliver a combination of 'strong for now' capability to stay trading in tough times, and 'fit for the future' to proof the business as far as possible for changes coming over the horizon. It was refreshing and encouraging to see an aspiration to reach the 196,000 employees in my country, Wales, to signpost them in the right direction for skills that will work in a new economy.

There's much to be done, and if every meeting I attended had the same level of ambition, change would be assured.
