SSC Relicensing Decisions

The decision to award or withhold a licence is made by Ministers in the UK Government and the Devolved Administrations based on the recommendation they receive from the UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES).

The UK Commission base the recommendation upon; consideration of the NAO assessment report, outcomes of site visits by a designated Commissioner and a full Relicensing Panel at which both the Chair and CEO of the SSC meet with Commissioners to make their case. Each recommendation is ratified by the full Commission.

This evidence is assessed against the published relicensing framework.  The Relicensing framework (Empowering SSCs – Employer driven skills reform across the UK) was launched in July 2008.
