Sector Skills Councils

Sector Skills Councils are independent, employer led UK wide organisations. They aim to develop high quality skills standards with employers which support productivity and growth and enhance competitiveness in UK and overseas markets.  

Sector Skills Councils are responsible for defining the qualifications which go together to make up an apprenticeship framework and are a great source of information for anyone wanting to pursuit a specific career.
