Asset Skills officially launched

Asset Skills, the newly licensed Sector Skills Council (SSC) for the property services, housing, cleaning services and facilities management sectors, was officially launched last week at an event held at the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors in Westminster.

The event featured an address from the Rt. Hon. Ruth Kelly MP, Secretary of State for Education and Skills. "Achieving Sector Skills Council status represents a huge opportunity," said Kelly. "A central aim of our skills strategy is to put employers in a pivotal position where they can respond effectively to the challenges to their sector. As well as getting a powerful say in meeting skills needs in their industry, Asset Skills now has a seat at the table in our new Skills for Business network of 25 Sector Skills Councils, which will be fully in place in the summer."

Richard Beamish, Chief Executive of Asset Skills, said, "The main role of Asset Skills is to improve business productivity by driving up standards and skills in the property, housing, cleaning services and facilities management sectors."

At the event, which was attended by employers, training providers and awarding bodies, Asset Skills gave a showcase of their work and the services they provide to stakeholders.
