Final report of the Independent Review of the Skills Delivery Landscape

The Review was led by James Withers, formerly Chief Executive of Scotland Food and Drink. The Scottish Funding Council (SFC) participated in the extensive engagement process and contributed to the call for evidence.

Commenting on the report, SFC Chair, Mike Cantlay, said:

“SFC welcomes the publication by the Scottish Government of the independent review of the skills delivery landscape, led by James Withers. It makes recommendations to address long-standing issues around a responsive and connected education and skills system, and provides a vital focus on the needs of learners and employers. We look forward to engaging with Scottish Government Ministers, partner agencies, and stakeholders on future reform decisions, as we continue to deliver for tertiary education and skills, research and innovation across Scotland.”
