The UK Financial Services Skills Council (FSSC) will change its name to the Financial Skills Partnership and become a charity from early 2011.
The changes come on the back of the organisation’s strategic review in the run up to its re-licence in March. And its recent partnership in September with the Scottish Financial Skills Gateway marks the start of the transformation.
Other changes are to its corporate structure to enable it to work more effectively with stakeholders, including launching a sector panel for accountancy and finance.
The FSSC is an independent, employer-led sector skills council for finance, accountancy and financial services.
The changes are pending confirmation from Companies House.
