Cogent Group publishes Impact Report
Cogent has published a summary report outlining its role and economic impact. Cogent Activity and Impact 2010, supports a recently launched independent report showing that Sector Skills Councils (SSCs) can achieve as much as twenty times the amount of funding they receive.

The Cogent publication reports on a number of key performance indicators, including completion of NVQs in the Sector; apprenticeship take ups; uptake of Foundation Degrees and the number of training providers signed up to the Skills Academies’ quality assured networks.  It includes the findings of Baker Tilly’s Evaluating Economic Impact report which shows that economic benefits generated by SSCs and their subsidiaries exceed the cost to Government.

Cogent’s own Impact report is also aimed a further boosting understanding of Cogent’s remit, which is delivered through its 5 “Big Tickets”.

  • Skills Standards and Qualifications: the development of a suite of employer-led qualifications that underpin Cogent designed competency-based role profiles.
  • Apprenticeships: Cogent is developing industry-specific frameworks and working to ensure sufficient numbers of apprentices to meet future needs.
  • Future Skills Research: Cogent’s Future Skills research programme provides the essential intelligence to inform the Sectors’ workforce planning.
  • Career Pathways Website: the established reference point for careers in the Cogent Sector. 
  • Skills benchmarking tools: Cogent is setting the standard for skills in the Sector and developing the IT tools to allow companies to assess their performance.
