UK technical and vocational skills experts with global reach and creating local impact.

TVET skills are what we do best. UK colleges, independent training providers, awarding organisations, professional bodies, sector skills organisations working collaboratively to achieve your skills ambitions.

TVET skills are a first choice. The UK Skills Partnership (UKSP) is a dynamic collaboration aimed at shaping a future workforce with the knowledge, abilities, and adaptability required for the challenges of the 21st century. Rooted in the belief that a nation’s prosperity is intricately tied to the skills and talents of its people, the UK Skills Partnership is a visionary partnership that seeks to bridge the gap between  education and industry, fostering innovation, economic growth, and societal progress.

In an era defined by rapid technological advancements, evolving industries, and global connectivity, the UK Skills Partnership stands as a beacon of forward-thinking collaboration. By bringing together skills providers, recognition bodies, businesses, policymakers, and individuals, UKSP supports the creation of a responsive ecosystem that nurtures talent, empowers learners, and aligns education with the ever-changing demands of the modern world.

Its network of world class skills and training organisations unlock the full potential of individuals and maximises opportunities for long term success. From apprenticeships and vocational training to cutting-edge future facing skills, it paves the way for a skills-driven economy that thrives on adaptability, creativity, and a commitment to lifelong learning.

UKSP is the representative body for TVET skills to the Education Sector Advisory Group [ESAG]. This ministerial lead group supports efforts to boost UK education exports and sets the strategic direction for the Department for Business and Trade’s (DBT) international education team.

Join us as we explore the myriad facets of the UK Skills Partnership, uncovering the collaborative efforts that are reshaping skills, training and education, empowering individuals, and driving nations towards a future where skills are embraced as the key currency for success.
