The West of England Local Enterprise Partnership is committed to driving up the skill base of the local working age population.

The Skills Team has been gathering information including: 

a) A broad labour market assessment of the partnership area

b) The identification of skills gaps and shortages

c) An assessment of the key sectors:

  • offering significant growth in high-value added, high productivity jobs
  • providing high volume employment in the partnership area including what we have done through the agreement.      

The Skills Team has highlighted that issues in relation to skill needs are evidenced at all levels:

  • Higher Level Skills
  • Intermediate Skills
  • Employability Skills.

Along with key partners and businesses within the sub-region, the team have been working to address the issues in each of these areas.
