27 Nov 2017
The Scottish Funding Council has welcomed today’s announcement of representatives for the new Enterprise and Skills Strategic Board.
The Board will align and coordinate the activities of the Scottish Funding Council, Scottish Enterprise, Highlands and Islands Enterprise and Skills Development Scotland. Chaired by Nora Senior, it will meet for the first time on 13 December.
Ms Senior, who is UK chair of global communications firm Weber Shandwick, said:
“It is time for a different way of looking at the enterprise and skills agenda, adopting a fresh approach and responding to changing economic, business and innovation needs.
“With such an ambitious remit, it is essential for the board to feature a range of voices with a depth of knowledge and experience of Scotland’s economy. The calibre of members we have invited on to the board is hugely impressive.”
