The new Sector Qualification Strategy (SQS) is now available as a free download here on the Habia website.
The SQS, which has been approved by the UK Council and Awarding Bodies, consists of four separate action plans for England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, and is designed to meet the identified needs of employers by outlining the future content and structure of qualifications and learning provision. It also explains how current and future skills needs will be addressed, and will inform and influence the work that Habia does with government and its agencies to help employers and learners.
