Leeds City Region Skills Plan Unveiled to Skills Leaders

Published 1 August 2016

Leeds City Region Employment and Skills Plan was unveiled to an audience of over 120 skills leaders at the Leeds City Region Skills Network’s Annual Conference.

Setting out the LEP’s Plan for Skilled People, Better Jobs, Stephanie Burras CBE, Chair of Leeds City Region’s Employment and Skills Panel, launched the Plan to chief executives, principals and a wealth of senior representatives from the region’s colleges, universities and private training providers at Leeds City College’s Printworks Campus last month.

Stephanie announced the LEP’s vision to increase skill levels and employability as part of the LEP’s wider Strategic Economic Plan and spoke of the LEP’s strong track record of tackling employment and skills challenges.

Delegates were also provided with insights into the latest labour market intelligence which highlighted challenges for the region followed by an engaging panel discussion focussed on emerging themes.

The annual conference marked the fifth of its kind to bring together the region’s partnership network of skills providers and was led by Peter McCann, Chair of Leeds City Region Skills Network and Kirklees College Principal.

Partners working to deliver

Speaking about the unique collaboration, Peter said “Our focus remains on working alongside Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership to engineer skills growth in the interest of businesses, in line with the Plan.

Our unique partnership generates greater synergy to align the opportunities to develop a flexible and highly skilled workforce critical to economic growth for the city region."
