3. 전략(Strategy) - LSC 웹사이트 내용

Employers

We want to help employers develop workforce skills so they can improve productivity and competitiveness. The LSC supports Apprenticeships and Train to Gain, an initiative through which a national network of brokers helps link employers to providers who can supply training tailored to their needs.

Young people

We want young people to improve their knowledge and skills and help them make the most of their potential. The LSC offers support to young people through Apprenticeships, Education Maintenance Allowances and the Entry to Employment scheme.

Adults

More than four million people of working age in England still have no qualifications and lack basic skills. We want to change this and have promised everyone free learning to achieve their first Level 2 qualification, with support focused on vocational skills.

Colleges and providers

We are working in partnership with colleges and providers to implement our Agenda for Change reforms that will radically transform the sector by improving standards and making it more responsive to the needs of employers and individuals.
