Strategic Framework

Helping Lancashire businesses succeed, creating employment in Lancashire


The Lancashire Skills and Employment Strategic Framework 2016-2021 underpins everything we do.

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 providers, careers education organisations 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 Social Fund 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.
