Enterprise and Skills Review report on Phase 2: Skills Alignment

Report illustrating the outcomes and progress achieved by the Skills Alignment project as part of the Enterprise and Skills Review.

1. Introduction

In the first phase of the Enterprise and Skills Review the Scottish Government concluded that the two existing skills bodies, Scottish Funding Council ( SFC) and Skills Development Scotland ( SDS), would continue to share leadership for the planning and commissioning of skills interventions. This means that both bodies will have collective responsibility and accountability to the Scottish Government for skills delivery. Going forward, therefore, we will draw on the relative strengths and expertise of the two lead agencies and will align their relevant functions to ensure the needs of learners and employers, as well as the capacity of providers, are taken fully into account to improve outcome delivery.
