Global sector skills expertise,
localised delivery.

Skills to keep pace with changing times.

The UK has a long history of technical vocational education and training (TVET) which extends back to the 12th century.

More recently, the UK TVET system has undergone a lengthy and substantive reforms process, so that the UK’s current and future workforce has the training and support, to achieve the high-level skills required, to succeed in today’s global economy.

Unparalleled expertise.

Our aim is to share the UK’s expertise and experience skills methodology, rather than an off-the-shelf TVET system.

This unique approach allows countries to create and build their own bespoke skills system – one that is fit for their country’s industrial needs, human capability and resource strategy, economic development, future growth and prosperity.

The UK delivers world-class technical and vocational education and training to:

  • Enable systemic reform of skills and education systems, including funding mechanisms;
  • Support economic development, growth and sustainability by building an appropriately skilled workforce through enhancing skills and education in key industrial areas;
  • Share world-class best practice in teaching and education policy, design and delivery enabling young people to maximise their potential for growth via a range of high quality education routes;
  • Create mutually beneficial opportunities and partnerships which dynamically build the capability and capacity required for systemic long term change;
  • Create public-private partnerships which support quality improvement, relevance and which bring about a sustainable financing of skills education;
  • Maximise the innovative and effective use of ICT/Education Technology to support the transformation of skills services;
  • Focus on sectoral skills development for employment and new types of skills, including industry 4.0 and other emerging sectors;
