Lancashire trailblazing Local Skills Improvement Plan (LSIP) to better support the needs of the local labour market and wider economy.

Lancashire has been chosen by GOV.UK - Department of Education as one of eight UK Local Skills Improvement Plan (LSIP) trailblazers which aims to reshape the local technical skills system to better support the needs of the local labour market and the wider economy.

The Lancashire LSIP is led by the North and Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce, working in partnership with the East Lancashire Chamber and supported by Lancaster Chamber.

A dedicated business engagement team will be gathering evidence from a wide range of employers of all sizes and sectors to develop a clear plan of what skills provision is required in Lancashire.

This will take place in the form of events, focus groups, interviews and online surveys.

They're are aiming to engage with 10,000 Lancashire employers, giving businesses a chance to set out the key changes needed to make technical skills training more responsive to employers' skills need.

How to have your say

Have your say by completing the following survey:

Local Skills Improvement Plan survey

The results of this initial survey will provide us with the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding as to where the skills gaps exist and where further investigatory work will need to be undertaken.

Your feedback is of vital importance, please do get involved - this is your opportunity to really make a difference. 

We will create and submit our Lancashire Local Skills Improvement Plan to the government on March 31 2022, after which the Department of Education will determine next steps.
