As the global economy continues to shift through factors ranging from technological disruption to demographic changes, employers are increasingly focused on developing the talent pool they need for growth and innovation.

Skills Development Scotland (SDS) is committed to working with employers to develop new pathways and approaches that allow them not only to identify fresh talent, but invest in the skills of their existing workforce.

Scotland's financial services sector offers a key example of this work, with SDS helping to create regional hubs bringing together employers such as BNP Paribas, Lloyds, Barclays, HSBC, Tesco Bank and Morgan Stanley alongside learning providers and the public sector to shape the curriculum for those seeking a career in the industry.

The impact of this collaboration is already clear through the introduction of the ‘Fast Track’ work-readiness course, developed for those keen to launch a career in financial services.
