Purpose of the consultation
The Economy, Infrastructure and Skills Committee would welcome your views on:
- Is the data and evidence being used by the Regional Skills Partnerships timely, valid and reliable? Have there been any issues?
- How well do the partnerships engage with and take into account the views of those who do not sit on the partnership boards, and how well do they account for the views of the skills providers themselves?
- How do the key City and Growth Deal roles of the Regional Skills Partnerships influence their Welsh Government remit?
- Are the Regional Skills Partnerships able to actually reflect current and future skills demands within their regions? What about very specialised skills for which there may be low volumes of demand?
- Do the Regional Skills partnerships have sufficient knowledge and understanding of:
o the foundational economy and the needs of those employed within it; and
o the demand for skills provision through the medium of Welsh?
- Are the Regional Skills Partnerships adequately resourced to fulfil their growing role?
- Is there an appropriate balance between the work of the RSPs and wider views on skills demand?
- Is the level of operational detail set out by Welsh Government for skills provision in higher/further education and work-based learning providers appropriate?
- If there are any, how are tensions between learner demand / learner progression reconciled with Regional Skills Partnership conclusions and the Welsh Government preference for funding higher level skills?
- Have the Regional Skills Partnerships and Welsh Government been able to stimulate changes in skills provision ‘on the ground’ to reflect demand?
- What, in general, is working well and what evidence of success and impact is there?
- Are there any aspects of the policy that are not working well, have there been any unintended consequences, and what improvements can be made?
The deadline for submissions to this inquiry is 4 March 2019.
