Strategic Framework

Helping Lancashire's businesses succeed, working with education and business to establish a future talent pipeline and creating employment in Lancashire.


The Lancashire Skills and Employment Strategic Framework 2024-2029

The Lancashire Skills and Employment Strategic Framework 24-29 builds on previous iterations and is underpinned by a robust evidence base. The Framework was developed in consultation with stakeholders, including employers, schools, colleges, universities, independent training providers and the third sector and is aligned with Lancashire 2050.

 The Framework articulates the skills and employment priorities for Lancashire and is structured into four key themes: Future Workforce, Inclusive Workforce, Skilled and Productive Workforce and Social Value and is underpinned by an Informed Approach. Each priority is broken down into a number of actions and outputs which are to be delivered in partnership with stakeholders and employers.
