LSC chief outlines future of partnerships

The
new chief executive of the Learning and Skills Council has promised to adopt a
partnership approach in his first speech since taking up the job.

Mark
Haysom, who set out his plans for the organisation, said he wanted to forge
closer relationships with all the stakeholders in the sector while driving down
the amount of red tape.

In
a speech to the Association of Colleges’ annual conference he also called for
more openness, clarity of focus and more commitment at local level.

"I
want the LSC to be famous for working in partnership.  We must forge robust relationships with all those organisations
that can help to make a difference in the enormous challenges we all face.

"I
want the LSC to be a very different kind of public sector organisation: open,
listening, responsive, fast-moving and professional in everything it does; an
organisation that promotes clarity;  one
with which it is good to do business," he said.
