Future Workforce

Helping to inspire future generations


Our continued prosperity depends upon having a workforce that is fit for the future. A group of highly employable young people with the right experience, attitudes and capabilities to take Lancashire forward.

Our objectives within the Future Workforce strategic theme are:

We can help employers link with schools and colleges so that they can give future generations an insight into the world of work, sign up to the Lancashire Skills Pledge, where knowledgeable professionals can contact you to discuss how these projects will benefit your business.

You can help the future generations develop their enterprising skills, attitudes and behaviours so they can successfully enter the workplace.

We can link you with projects where you can influence how schools and colleges engage with businesses, and how they inspire their student’s career choices.

You can offer your time to mentor young people, inspire young people to work for your business or inspire young people to become apprentices.

You can help shape and inform schools and colleges curriculum so that the future workforce is being trained with the skills and knowledge you need as a business.

You can work with students on live projects, offer work placements and internships.
