People 1st seek views on Government proposals for vocational qualifications

People 1st, the sector skills council for the hospitality, leisure, trade and tourism sector, is to contact employers and employer groups to ask their opinions about the government's proposed Framework for Achievement.

The Framework, which will apply to vocational education throughout England, is designed to recognise smaller units of learning, even including company's own in-house training schemes for the first time.

People 1st's consultation will take the form of an email questionnaire, supported by face-to-face meetings and input via the web, and the results will be fed back directly to the government.

Brian Wisdom, chief executive officer of People 1st, is enthusiastic about the consultation process: "We are committed to making a difference for the hospitality, leisure, trade and tourism sector and that means fully representing the views of companies within the sector. By seeking out and listening to their views, we can represent them at the highest levels and bring our combined influence to bear.

"These are huge changes that will affect all businesses and much of society. This is a one off opportunity to get the best qualifications to suit your employees and your business. Many employers already see unitised qualifications as a less disruptive and more valuable way to give recognition and career development to employees."
