About us

Supporting the growth of the Lancashire economy by
developing people's skills

Creating sustainable skills and employment to drive prosperity is key to Lancashire’s future – and to ensure this happens the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership has created a Skills and Employment Board and the Lancashire Skills and Employment Hub.

The Skills & Employment Board

The Board was established in 2013 and it considers skills and employment priorities within the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership’s area (which covers Lancashire County, Blackburn with Darwen and Blackpool).
