JACK Matthews (pictured), chief executive of York-based food and drink sector skills council Improve, has been appointed chairman of the Yorkshire and Humber branch of the Alliance of Sector Skills Councils.
The alliance represents all of the industry-linked sector skills councils in the region. It acts as the voice of employers and works to ensure the needs of the Yorkshire and Humberside business community are met in national skills and training policy.
Sector skills councils were established by the government in 2004 to take the lead in driving up skills in the workplace.
