Leitch Review: Employers Respond


“The Leitch Review rightly comes out in support of Sector Skills Councils driving improvements in skills in the UK. But what is also needed is for the government to deliver on its promise of real influence for employers so we can start making the changes needed for the economy to thrive.”
Clive Jones, Chief Executive of ITV News and Regions

“The Leitch Review critically recognises the excellent achievements already made by the Sector Skills Councils and recommends greater responsibilities for them. What is urgent now is that the Government in turn puts greater weight behind the Sector Skills Agreement process.”
Stewart Till, Chairman and CEO of United International Pictures

“The UK is at a disadvantage because we have never had the skilled production infrastructure to maximise our potential. The Leitch Review provides fresh focus on skills and bluntly reminds us that without the continued investment in training required to maintain the many skills and crafts that go into producing quality garments and footwear, we are merely investing in a skills gap.”
Designer, Jasper Conran

"Leitch’s focus on finding ways to ensure the UK has the right skills for the next decade is vital. Industries such as construction are already under great pressure to ensure that they realise their potential and deliver on a heavy order book, including high profile projects such as the 2012 Olympics."
Jeremy Galpin, HR Director, Costain
