SfCD is licensed by government to be the SSC for our sector. SfCD was pleased to be relicensed as a sector skills council in May 2010, with unanimous support from all our government sponsoring departments.

Partnership working

As a partnership ourselves, we understand the importance of forging partnerships with other organisations where it will mean maximum gain for our sector and service users.

The goal of SSCs is to ensure that good market intelligence drives increased investment to achieve greater impact on skills, jobs and economic growth. Their priorities are:

    • To provide world-class labour market intelligence which helps businesses and people make the best choices for them
    • To work with sectors and business leaders to develop and deliver the best solutions to generate greater employer investment in skills
    • To maximise the impact of changed employment and skills policies and employer behaviour to help drive jobs, growth and an internationally competitive skills base

Code of Practice

All SSCs are members of the Federation for Industry Sector Skills & Standards

The Welsh Language Commissioner

The principal aim of the Welsh Language Commissioner, an independent body established by the Welsh Language (Wales) Measure 2011 (following the Welsh Language Act 1993) is to promote and facilitate use of the Welsh language. This will entail raising awareness of the official status of the Welsh language in Wales and by imposing standards on organizations.  This, in turn, will lead to the establishment of rights for Welsh speakers.The principal aim of the Welsh Language Commissioner, an independent body established by the Welsh Language (Wales) Measure 2011 (following the Welsh Language Act 1993) is to promote and facilitate use of the Welsh language.
