According to the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), in its response to the government consultation Skills for Sustainable Growth, there needs to be a greater role for the recruitment industry in future skills policy.
Skills minister John Hayes announced the publication of the consultation document, which includes how to take forward initiatives such as investing in learning and how to ensure training leads to new skills and not only accreditation.
Tom Hadley, the REC's director of policy and professional services said the skills agenda is central to exploring ways of solving the continuing shortages being experienced in the highly skilled jobs market, including technology and engineering.
He added: "We will be seeking to work closely with the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills to ensure it is aware of the expertise and value professional recruiters bring to making young jobseekers aware of the opportunities available in sectors where there are skills shortages."
