Strategic Framework

Helping Lancashire businesses succeed, creating employment in Lancashire

It has been created from what we learned from our evidence base and through extensive consultation with stakeholders including employers, young people education and skills organisations, careers education institutions and third sector bodies.

The Framework sets out the skills and employment priorities for Lancashire and we are working in partnership with our stakeholders to achieve the objectives set out in the framework.

The Framework informs investment decisions made in relation to flexible funding (for example, European Structural Investment Funds and Growth Deal Skills Capital) and influences the use of mainstream skills and employment funding. Stakeholders making use of these budgets in Lancashire are invited to set out how their delivery will contribute to achieving the Framework’s priorities.
