About the Event
One of the key provisions of the Skills and Post-16 Education Act was the creation of Local Skills Improvement Plans. These are designed to:
- Set the key priorities to make post16 technical education or training more responsive and closely to local labour market needs
- Provide a representative employer view of the skills most needed to support local economic growth and boost productivity
- Enable local partners to effectively join-up with other parts of the local skills system.
Employer Representative Bodies have been designated to draw up plans for a period of three years to be reviewed and updated as appropriate during this time.
This panel event will discuss the role of LSIPS, including:
- How LSIPs will work in practice, particularly -the collaboration between ERBs, local authorities, and tertiary education providers.
- How LSIPs can identify current and predicted skill gaps and provide local labour market intelligence to inform skills provision
- How LSIPs can improve on previous attempts to match the supply and demand for skills.
