Strategy/Action Plan

 

The Skills Strategy & Action Plan sets out how the Scottish Textiles Skills Partnership will support the industry to address its skill needs.

The 5 key challenges identified in the plan are:

• Raising the attractiveness of the sector to new entrants and retaining and transferring the skills of an ageing workforce

• Developing World Class Leadership and Management skills in the sector

• Ensuring that the supply of skills through education matches industry demand

• To adopt a more strategic approach to workforce development to make more effective use of skills

• Enhancing the level of business skills for growth

The STSP will create and support a wide range of activities which are key to developing a “skills pipeline” for the industry. The key points in this “skills pipeline” are highlighted in the diagram below.
