Cogent Sector Skills Council

Cogent is the UK's industry skills body for chemicals, pharmaceuticals, nuclear, oil and gas, petroleum and polymer businesses, and we also have a key role in meeting the skills needs of emerging technologies.

As an employer-led Sector Skills Council (SSC), they work with industry to research and forecast skills needs and develop fit-for-purpose standards and qualifications and other skills solutions.

Employers and national and regional partners are working with Cogent and with their National Skills Academies to ensure that individuals and the companies they work for can develop higher skills and achieve higher productivity. 

What do we do?

  • The voice of employers on skills: we are providing the collective voice of employers on skills to influence Government and public providers of skills, education and training.
  • Designing qualifications: we are developing fit-for-purpose and future-focused, standards-based qualifications.
  • Attracting young people into the Sector: we are working to attract young people into the Cogent Sector; helping to shape the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) curriculum and promoting careers. 
  • Understanding industry skills needs: through our in-depth labour market research we are providing an industry-by-industry picture of skills


Cogent has a unique place in the UK’s skills infrastructure and we operate or engage  at every level of training and. The development of vocational and professional education and fit for purpose qualifications lies at the heart of our work.
