WorldSkills UK welcomes Scotland’s International Education Strategy
Carol Turnbull, WorldSkills UK Ambassador for Scotland, said
“We welcome the first International Education Strategy published by the Scottish Government. It presents a significant opportunity to set a new level of ambition for skills in Scotland that will support employers to be internationally competitive and attractive to prospective employees, helping to attract more inward investment to drive growth.
“In supporting this ambition, we will work with our college and university partners in Scotland to ensure that there is a focus on high quality skills development. Through our Centre of Excellence programme, we will embed international insights from our global benchmarking programmes to raise standards in higher technical education and apprenticeships, so that more young people are emerging from their training highly skilled, confident and ready for work in Scotland.”
