Strategic Plan 2015 – 2018

SummitSkills Strategic Plan 2015-2018We’re delighted to announce that on 01 April we started work on activities within our new 2015-2018 Strategic Plan.

Since our transition from a Sector Skills Council (SSC) to a Standard Setting Organisation (SSO) we have become more efficient and now better reflect the needs of industry, acting as the voice of employers of all sizes across the BSE sector on industry

We continue to act as the voice of the industry through our core areas of work: developing and maintaining standards, maintaining apprenticeship frameworks and managing qualifications. We are also involved in a number of other key activities such as certification and the low carbon agenda.
