Sector Skills Councils are unable to deliver the goods

My experience with Sector Skills Councils (SSCs) has been that the one thing I need right now can’t be delivered (Personnel Today, 13 December).

We need to be able to conduct skills audits of our staff in vocational and professional areas, using simple sector-specific skills frameworks for local government jobs. Are these available from the SSCs or indeed anything similar?

Generally, with the exception of ICT, the answer is no. Just my two pence for what it’s worth.
