About the Alliance
The Alliance represents, promotes and supports the work of the 22 Sector Skills Councils (SSCs) across the UK. Established in 2008, the Alliance is the collective voice of SSCs and works to position them within the UK skills system.
For 2011-12, the Alliance is focusing and prioritising its activity on two inter-related strategic objectives:
1. To position SSCs collectively for optimum impact in the skills and employment systems in all four UK nations by serving as their independent collective voice and agent
2. To support and promote strategic collective activity by SSCs.
The Alliance works in partnership with the UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES). We share the belief that the sectoral approach is the best way to create the conditions for increased investment in skills which will drive enterprise, create jobs and deliver sustainable economic growth. We are working together to achieve this.
The Alliance and UKCES have agreed a joint Vision Statement as a foundation for this partnership.
