ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Engineering Employers Federation (EEF) is questioning the efforts of the British government to reform the Skill Funding Agency (SFA). Tom Radley, EEF director of policy, stated in his letter that the government is appointing officials of the agency who are current directors of the Learning and Skills Council (LSC). The government decided to remove the LSC after 9 years because of mismanagement of its flagship skills initiative Train to Gain.
