The Humber Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) is the first Local Enterprise Partnership in the country to have achieved a national licence as a Licensed Awarding Body for the Quality in Careers Standard.
One of only twelve national holders, the Humber LEP is the only Local Enterprise Partnership out of 38 to have been awarded this status, after submitting an extremely strong application to the Quality and Careers Standard Consortium.
As a result of this licensing award, the 21 schools, colleges and training organisations that have met the LEP’s Gold Standard have also received praise and are validated at national level.
This puts the Humber region is a position of real advantage, as the LEP and its partners look to address the skills issues in our area.
Stephen Savage, Chair of the Humber LEP Employment and Skills Board said:
“This licence is credit to the work that we have achieved thus far, working with our partners and the education providers in the Humber region.
“Those providers who have achieved our Humber Gold Standard should be very proud of all their hard work.
“We are pleased that our submission to the Quality and Careers Standard Consortium was well received and we realise that this licence gives the Humber LEP and the region another strong asset to showcase.”
