Background

The Lancashire Enterprise Partnership (LEP) was the first area in the Country to launch a Local Digital Skills Partn

ership trailblazer. We are now one of only six areas in the Country, supported by DCMS in this ‘test and learn’ phase.

The Lancashire Digital Skills Partnership brings together public private and charity sector organisations to address local digital skills needs. Lots of good work already happens in Lancashire to improve the digital skills landscape and the Partnership provides co-ordination.  We do this by highlighting good practice and working with partners to fill gaps in provision to ensure Lancashire becomes a digital skills hot spot with:

  • High levels of digital inclusion
  • Successful businesses and increased productivity across all sectors
  • A pipeline of people with digital skills leaving our schools, colleges and universities

We have a working structure for the partnership based around the strategic framework of the Skills and Employment Hub. This includes a steering group and three networking groups – one for each area of focus—see diagram above.

We want more local businesses, and partners involved to grow the success and impact of the work of the partnership.  To join and support the partnership, email Kerry Harrison – kerry.harrison@lancashirelep.co.uk or use the contact form below.
