Part of the role of SkillsActive is to draw together the expertise of training providers and the needs of employers to match the expectations of individuals.
To help ensure the services it offers meet the requirements of each of these groups SkillsActive consults with different expert groups made up of specialist representatives from training providers, employers and individuals.
Much of our work with our sectors comes through expert groups and committees, and in the playwork sector we are engaged with the following groups:
The All Party Parliamentary Group on Play (APPG)
The All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on play meets to consider topics relating to children's play and take political action on current issues affecting children's right to play freely.
The group enables MPs and peers to keep up to date on the latest developments in children's play and decide on actions, which influence political decision making processes.
The Playwork Education & Training Council - UK (PETC)
The Playwork Education and Training Council for the UK, PETC UK, is a forum for the sector to discuss issues of strategic importance on all aspects of playwork education, training and qualifications.
