LSC wants action plan on training

Training funding body the Learning and Skills Council wants to work with charities to identify government-funded programmes that do not meet their needs.

Angela Berry, economic development adviser to the LSC, told a conference on public service delivery last week that the council wanted to draw up a joint action plan and approach the government for funding.

She said anecdotal evidence suggested that the Train to Gain programme, which matches organisations with training, was not 'sector literate' but warned that the Treasury would require hard evidence.

Mark Freeman, learning and skills manager at the Workforce Hub, said that little useful contracting training was available. He said lower-level qualifications should be recognised by all sectors and higher-level courses needed to be made more relevant to charities.
