Good morning all,
Local Skills Improvement Plans (LSIPs) were introduced by Department of Education as a key part of the Government’s vision of an adult skills system where businesses are given a stronger voice in local skills planning and the aim of the LSIP is to place employers at the heart of the skills system.
My role, as Employer Engagement Executive, is to engage with as many employers as possible to gain insight in what the skills gaps for our region are and what the barriers are to prevent employers engaging with their local colleges and feedback to the colleges so that they can change their offering to meet the needs of local businesses.
Your feedback as employers is extremely valuable to help close the skills gap and shape the future of the next generation. To help with this, I would like to ask as many of you as possible to answer these 3 questions and email the answers to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Are you currently engaged with a local college?
- What would prevent you from engaging with your local college?
- What do you feel are the current skills gaps for your industry?
Thank you for your support in this.
