Our goal is to support businesses to develop a highly-skilled workforce. We do that by setting skill and qualification standards that meet industry needs, supporting successful apprenticeship schemes and working with businesses, employees and schools on programmes that give everyone the best chance of success. We consult with our industries through our members, keeping them up-to-date and inviting them to take part in our meetings.
- E-Forma: E-Forma is our e-newsletter.
- Attend the AGM: The AGM gives members a chance to review HITO’s progress and discuss HITO’s next steps. The AGM normally takes place between April and May.
- Vote at the AGM: HITO Employer Members can vote on changes to rules, new Board members and recommend changes.
