Skills for Justice aims to unite the justice sector
Richard Winterton, Chief Executive of of the new Sector Skills Council, Skills for Justice, has outlined its approach to supporting the reform agenda within the justice sector.
At the organisations official launch, attended by the Secretary of State for Education and Skills, Charles Clarke MP, Mr Winterton said: "We will focus on identifying the critical skills staff need to continue to work effectively in this changing environment. Working with learning providers we will make certain that training courses accurately reflect the skills needs and meet the requirements of all employers.
