Welsh companies pledge support to basic skills
One hundred and six companies around Wales, employing over 170,000 people, have now signed up to the Agency's Employer Pledge programme. Last month, Executive Director for Wales, Toni Schiavone, presented three Employer Pledge awards to Conwy Borough Council, Conwy Furniture Reclaim and to Sumitomo in Ystradgynlais, Swansea.
In total, 25 awards have now been given and a total of 76 companies have submitted action plans. The Employer Pledge has been developed to reduce the substantial number of adults in Wales with poor literacy and numeracy skills. It is designed for all private and public sector companies and organisations, whatever their size, and allows them to demonstrate their commitment to the National Strategy in a concrete way.
