Evidence Base

Details of how we researched the skills needs and requirements of Lancashire's priority business sectors

We have developed a robust evidence base which identifies key issues in driving a skilled, balanced and inclusive labour market.

We have commissioned a range of studies to create the comprehensive evidence base and have drawn together key priorities and objectives from the studies and identified common themes and issues. This has formed the basis of the Lancashire Skills and Employment Strategic Framework.

We have also created Labour Market Information (LMI) factsheets for each of our priority sectors in Lancashire in partnership with the National Careers Service.

The reports and resources are provided below for partners and stakeholders to access and use.

Priority Sector Executive Summaries

We have researched the skills needs and requirements of Lancashire businesses across a range of sectors which have been identified in Lancashire due to their high replacement demand needs and significant growth potential.

You can access the executive summary of each of the seven priority sectors studies by clicking on the relevant sector name.

If you would like the full report of any of the sector studies please email your request to LancsSkillsHub@lancashirelep.co.uk.

Priority Sector LMI Fact Sheets

We have taken the research into each of our priority sectors and we have created these LMI fact sheets.

They give you key information about each of the sectors in Lancashire and sign post you to further information and resources. They are free for you to use, please contact us and let us know if you find them useful.
