In 21st Century Skills: Realising our Potential, it set that reform within its general strategy for tackling our long-standing skills gaps. The commitment is backed by the largest ever investment. Total planned funding for the learning and skills sector will increase by 19 per cent between 2002/2003 and 2005/2006. This represents over £1 billion of new money. We, the Learning and Skills Council, share this commitment. We have a major role to play in making sure that the skills strategy is put into practice. We aim to develop new and productive ways of working with all college and training organisations to help them raise standards, build on strengths, tackle weaknesses, and increase and widen participation. In particular, we want to work with college and training organisations to develop new and better ways of planning and funding education and training. Success for All and the skills strategy set out an exciting vision for the future. The action we need to take to make this vision a reality is the basis for our quality improvement strategy. This document sets out what that strategy is.
