The Chair invited Roy Wilsher, Chair NFCC, to introduce the update.
Roy highlighted two points from the report:
1. The Emergency Services End Point Assessment project that had been launched. Roy said that they were looking to build a register of both assessors and prospective apprentices but it was good that apprenticeship levy money was being used within the sector.
2. Data programmes. The aim was to get data ready for the sector for use for example in the current Comprehensive Spending Review round.
Following the introduction, members raised the following points:
· Did the leadership project mentioned in paragraph 1.39 link in with other public sector partners? Roy confirmed that it did.
· Was use of UPRN as a location tool going to be standardised across the country to ensure interoperability? Roy said that UPRN would help with data on buildings but it would be complementary to What3Words rather than a replacement.
Members of the Fire Services Management Committee noted the update.
