Work-based learning is important to help our businesses succeed, to bridge the gap between education and industry, and to prepare our young people for work. Working with education and industry, we will identify and evidence good practice and design and develop new approaches in work-based learning.
The Centre was founded by Skills Development Scotland and will work in partnership, to influence policy, practice and perception of work-based learning. The Centre will align its work with the Scottish Apprenticeship Advisory Board (SAAB) and lead on policy and research advice to the SAAB.
Underpin policy development on work-based learning, by conducting and disseminating high quality, policy relevant research to influence the learning system.
Enhance practice by developing best practice in Scotland and drawing on lessons from international experience.
Damien Yeates, Chief Executive, Skills Development Scotland
