Policy statement on skills and Skills implementation plan
In January 2014, we published our long-term ambition for employment and skills policy in Wales. A commitment within the statement was to produce a Skills Implementation Plan which would set out the key actions to be undertaken and their timeline for delivery. These actions support the longer-term reform required to secure a resilient and sustainable skills system for Wales.
