The Skills Pledge is a voluntary, public commitment by employers to support their employees to develop their basic skills, including literacy and numeracy, and work towards relevant, valuable qualifications to at least Level 2 (equivalent to five good GCSEs).

Since the launch of the Skills Pledge in June 2007 we have made excellent progress. The latest available figures up until December 2008 show that nine organisations in your Hemel Hempstead constituency and 97 organisations in Hertfordshire have made the Skills Pledge. Please note that these figures include both public and private organisations.
