Skills Solutions

Delivering skills,
creating impact and realising ambitions

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.

Driving UN SDG achievement

All training providers and partners from the UK Skills Partnership are working hard to ensure that by delivering the right contextualised skills, they are supporting and driving achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Your ambitions are our goals.
