We are the Lancashire Skills and Employment Hub

We work to the Lancashire Skills and Employment Board which has responsibility for skills and employment priorities in Lancashire, supporting the work of the  Lancashire’s Local Authorities.

Our focus is to create the conditions for a balanced, skilled and inclusive labour market to underpin economic well-being, productivity and growth across the Lancashire area.

We work with a wide range of partners to deliver our priorities which fit into the following four strategic themes, Future Workforce, Inclusive Workforce, Skilled and Productive Workforce and Social Value. We take an Informed Approach to setting priorities through analysis of local labour market intelligence.

An informed approach

An informed approach underpins each of the four strategic themes of The Lancashire Skills and Employment Hub Strategic Framework

An informed approach is around taking an evidence based approach to identifying the skills and employment issues facing Lancashire’s business and industries, prioritising and influencing locally and nationally, and working with partners to identify best practice.
