Part of the Humber LEP network:

Welcome

The Humber is experiencing an economic, social, cultural and infrastructural renaissance and the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership is at the forefront driving growth and prosperity.

We are a partnership of business, education and the four Humber local authorities working together to promote and develop the area surrounding the Humber Estuary and provide strategic economic leadership to create jobs and deliver growth.

Our priorities

Meeting our 2020 Skills ambition requires the creation of a vibrant environment that inspires young people and adults to maximise their own potential, recognising current and future career opportunities, supported by excellent labour market intelligence and by appropriate careers education, information, advice and guidance (CEIAG).
