Skills For Growth: The National Skills Strategy
- Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS)
- TSO (The Stationery Office)
Our economic recovery and long term prosperity depends on people who are not only highly skilled but also appropriately skilled for the changing economy. Skills policy must therefore be based on the twin objectives of wider and more flexible access to skills training. Greater focus should be placed on the evolving nature of the skills required for the modern world.
'Skills For Growth: The National Skills Strategy (Cm. 7641)' outlines policy proposals in line with these objectives.
Aspects covered include:
Promoting skills for economic prosperity
Responding to businesses and key sectors
Equipping adults for future jobs
Raising business investment in workforce productivity
Improving training in a simpler system.
The ultimate goal is that 'three-quarters of people should participate in higher education or complete an advanced apprenticeship or equivalent technician level course by the age of 30'.
