One of the many things I’ve missed over the past few years has been the set-up of the Sector Skills Development Agency. What I learned today, via Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce‘s Education Policy Group, is that their 25 Sector Skills Councils, set up to manage skills within industry sectors, provide a great source of skills information for specific careers.
- Creative and Cultural Skills
- Skillfast UK – for Fashion and Textiles
- SEMTA – for Science, Engineering, Maths and Technologies
In each case I’ve looked at, the web sites include a section for those interested in developing careers in the sector. It’s the sort of thing that could be very useful in helping support course choices.
