Team appointed to champion learning for Cambridgeshire


Sal Brinton, Chair of the Learning and Skills Council (LSC) Cambridgeshire, today announced the appointment of the members of the Learning and Skills Council's Local Council. Local Council members will work together to encourage more people to take the opportunity to transform their lives through education and training, and give local businesses a say in getting the skilled people they need.

Sal Brinton said: "I am delighted that the LSC for Cambridgeshire has been able to attract such a broad range of talent and expertise. The Council will be a powerful voice and advocate for all customers of education, learning and training from individual learner to businesses and in particular small and medium sized enterprises.

"The Council represents a powerful alliance of key stakeholders from all sectors of the Cambridgeshire Community. I am certain that the Council will be able to use its collective local knowledge and access to local partnerships to help meet the needs of learners in Cambridgeshire.

"I believe that by harnessing the strategic thrust of a national organisation locally here in Cambridgeshire, the Council will be able to engender a step-change in the improvement of learning and skills for everyone with the consequent benefit of enhanced prosperity for the area."

Bryan Sanderson, National Chairman of the LSC, said: "This is a significant step forward in the development of the LSC. We now have, in every part of England, a talented team of people to deliver the huge challenge ahead of us - to transform post-16 education and training.

"The local LSCs will work in partnership to create a culture where businesses see the need to train their employees as fundamental to their success, and where the education and training system is driven by the needs of learners, businesses and communities - its customers.

"We will develop new ways to help individuals and employers who do not currently engage in education and training. We will also bring back into learning those who the system may have failed, by reaching out to them, and developing training which is more suitable to their individual needs. Our message to all - businesses as well as individuals is that learning is a boon, not a burden."

The successful candidates have been chosen in a wide-ranging recruitment exercise which nationally saw almost 700 positions advertised.
