Skills sector development agency

Welcome to the Skills for Business network

The Skills for Business network aims to boost the productivity and profitability of the UK. We’re doing this by identifying and tackling skills gaps and shortages on a sector by sector basis. In short, we’re trying to get the right people with the right skills in the right place at the right time.

The Skills for Business network is made up of 25 Sector Skills Councils (SSCs) - each one is an employer-led, independent organisation. The Sector Skills Development Agency (SSDA) underpins the network and is responsible for funding, supporting and monitoring the SSCs.
