Partners

Working in partnership to develop skills and deliver new jobs for Lancashire

Working with partners across the Lancashire LEP area, 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.

We are working in partnership with our stakeholders to achieve the objectives set out in the Lancashire Skills and Employment Strategic Framework.

Some of our key partnership initiatives are outlined below:

Apprenticeship

Apprenticeships are more important than ever for Lancashire to ensure we achieve our skills and employment priorities. The apprenticeship reforms are making unprecedented changes to the apprenticeship landscape and therefore supporting partners to grow apprenticeships is a priority for the Hub.

We are working with partners across the county to ensure growth in the number and quality of apprenticeships in Lancashire. This activity will also ensure apprenticeships are able to support business growth provide an exciting pathway for young people.

City Deal

The Preston, South Ribble and Lancashire City Deal is expected to generate 20,000 new jobs. The Skills Hub commissioned a skills and employment study which sets out the skills and employment challenges and priority action plan to deliver the City Deal.

A Social Value Toolkit has been developed by the Skills Hub for the Growth Deal programme and is currently being translated to the City Deal. A City Deal Skills and Employment Steering Group oversee the implementation of the plan, reports on the outcomes and provide case studies, as well as the City Deal Skills and Employment dashboard.
