What is a Skillnet?
A Skillnets network (a ‘Skillnet’) is a group of companies that come together to carry out cross-organisational training related activities which may not be possible on their own. Companies jointly address their training needs, collaborate with other enterprises, and engage experts, trainers, certifying bodies, industry bodies and others to work with them to achieve their goals.
