Help shape the future skills support for businesses

Worcestershire organisations are being invited to share their thoughts and feedback in the Local Skills Improvement Plans to help shape the skills and recruitment support available for businesses.

What is an LSIP?

The Local Skills Improvement Plans (LSIPs) are a DfE funded project to give local areas the flexibility to innovate and tailor approaches to skills to better match business needs. LSIPs bring together employers, education and training providers, and other local stakeholders to set out key priorities and changes needed in the area to ensure post-16 technical education and training prepares employees better for work. Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce is delivering the Local Skills Improvement Plan (LSIPs) for the county of Worcestershire.

Why is this important?

For years employers have been asking for more input into skills provision – to better equip people for the workplace.

This is the opportunity employers have been waiting for. There are a few short months to gather intelligence from businesses within Worcestershire about the skills and behaviours they will need from employees over the next 5 years to help them ensure growth.

If you are a business owner / employer – this is an opportunity to be heard and to make a positive difference to the future economy of the county.

How can you get involved?

The Chamber of Commerce are also hosting a series of events throughout Worcestershire, which all businesses that operate within the county are welcome to attend. These will be round table discussion events which will allow us to ask businesses questions and explore their skills needs in greater depth.

Alternatively you can contact the Local Skills Improvement Plan Manager, Lauren Ashford, at the Chamber of Commerce, who will arrange a conversation with you directly.
