Established in 2004 as the Sector Skills Council for the UK’s Justice, Fire and Rescue, Local Government and Armed Forces, we work to inform policy and industry standards, while focusing on the improvement of service delivery across all the sectors we operate in.

We work directly with employers to ensure high-quality and sustainable public services by improving delivery and skills within the workforce.

Clients of Skills for Justice work with us safe in the knowledge that we protect their data after we became ISO27001 certified. After many months of hard work to ensure our processes met the required standard, the Workforce Development Trust (our parent company) passed its information security audit by a UKAS Accredited Auditor.

This means that our Information Security Management System has achieved the required ISO27001 standard.
