Priorities for skills development and apprenticeships policy

December 8, 2016 | UK

Sessions will assess progress being made, and next steps, in key areas outlined in the strategy including the development of college partnerships, senior vocational pathways, and measures to encourage employer engagement with Scottish youth following publication of Phase 1 of the Scottish Government’s review into Scotland’s skills agencies. Delegates will also consider plans to reduce gender imbalance and stereotyping within education and employment. Further sessions will discuss the direction of apprenticeships policy in Scotland, with the Scottish Government announcing a consultation on the Apprenticeship Levy due to be introduced as of April 2017 and Foundation Apprenticeships to be rolled out in every secondary school by 2020.
