Future skills needs of the Humber economy – Surveys

The Humber LEP logoThe Humber LEP logo

THE HUMBER LEP (Local Enterprise Partnership) launched a major piece of work in September 2012 looking at the future skills needs of the Humber economy and how schools, colleges and universities can help to provide the workforce businesses need.

The Humber LEP’s Skills Commission has been tasked with producing recommendations on how education and training provision can ensure the local workforce meets businesses’ needs.

The Commission is being chaired by Nic Dakin MP. Members include Lord Haskins, Chairman of the Humber LEP, representatives of major local employers, key agencies and representatives of schools and colleges.

The Commission will operate like a select committee of the House of Commons, and seeks to hear from local businesses, education and training providers and people who have struggled to access training that would help them to find work.

The LEP has produced now produced two surveys to collate data; one to collect information from Employers and the other to collect from Skills Providers.

You can download the surveys via the links in the paragraph above, or complete them online via the LEP (Temporary) Website at Skills Commission call for Evidence.

Return completed surveys by Wednesday 31st October 2012, to info@humberlep.org.
