Employers to suffer after SSC setback

first_imgLocal government employers will suffer after the sector was allocated one ofthe new Expert Body skills development organisations instead of attainingSector Skills Council (SSC) status. The Government will not outline the exact powers of the new Expert Bodiesuntil April, but Joan Munro, director of development at the Employers’Organisation for Local Government, said the decision means the sector willreceive less funding and resources and its influence over the training of itsstaff will be significantly reduced. The SSCs are employer-led bodies introduced last March to replace theNational Training Organisations to promote skills development. Most of the UK’sother major sectors have benefited from the funding and expertise they provide.The local government Expert Body would be expected to feed into the sixmanagement-based SSCs – including social services and education – that overlapwith local government’s services. Munro told the conference the decision not to give local government its ownSSC, despite the intervention of local government minister Nick Raynsford,could have a damaging effect on the drive to build skills capacity in localgovernment. “The Sector Skills Development Agency is not convinced that the skillsin local government are unique. It thinks managing in the sector is the same asat Marks & Spencer,” Munro said. The sector has a final opportunity to change the SSDA’s decision at theirmeeting in March.
