Sector Skills Council holds launch event in Northern Ireland
Lifelong Learning UK (LLUK), the Sector Skills Council for the lifelong learning sector, has held its official launch in Northern Ireland.
Speaking to more than one hundred guests at Stormont Parliament, LLUK's chief executive David Hunter said: "LLUK will give employers in lifelong learning a voice that will enable us to truly represent our workforce in shaping the challenging agenda that is facing us. LLUK operates across the UK and will be embracing the contrasting needs and challenges facing learning professionals in all four countries."
Hunter said that among LLUK's priorities in Northern Ireland are raising participation in learning among adults, increasing the number of adults with qualifications at Level 2 and above, and encouraging more small firms to offer training to their employees.
John Hedger, chair of LLUK, said: "By offering employers in the wider economy a better skilled workforce, we can help Northern Ireland to compete more effectively internationally."
Tom Place, chair of LLUK's new Northern Ireland panel, said staff in lifelong learning are both demanders and suppliers of new skills and must be placed in a better position to offer training to more employers, including micro-businesses with just a handful of employees.
