Inclusive Workforce objectives:

  • Accessible adult careers provision informed by local LMI.
  • Effective use of Adult Education Budget (AEB) to improve the skills and employability of Lancashire’s people.
  • Work collaboratively with employers, DWP and employment providers to support more people into good jobs.
  • Sector specific initiatives targeted at areas with labour market demand (for example, Skills Bootcamps).
  • Research growth in economic inactivity in Lancashire.

We want to make it easy for employers to find out more about projects which support pre-employment training and recruitment, sign up to the Lancashire Skills Pledge, where knowledgeable professionals can contact you to discuss how these projects will benefit your business.

  • Are you looking to build a competitive advantage through your team’s performance but struggle to fill vacancies?
  • Are are looking to fill your vacancies with better trained and skilled people?
  • Is recruiting new staff members costing you time and money?
  • Are you struggling recruiting the right type of people with the right skills?
  • Do you need support recruiting an Apprentice?

If the answer to these questions is yes then we can link you to projects which offer you support to recruit the people you need.

These projects can offer some up front staff development, ensuring your new recruits are more informed and better equipped to start their role within your organisation.

There are also projects supporting businesses to find just the right apprentices, so your organisation can grow your own stars.
