We have developed a robust evidence base which identifies key issues in driving a skilled, balanced and inclusive labour market.
Details of how we researched the skills needs and requirements of Lancashire's priority business sectors
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.
