The Humber LEP wishes to develop a call for a skills capital programme for construction and civil engineering across the region.

This will attract up to approximately £2.5m capital investment to deliver a collaborative resource solution to support training delivery that meets employer need and would need to be delivered by March 2021 latest.

The LEP will host an event at Bishop Burton College, on Thursday 29th November starting at 1pm, to invite businesses from across the region into discussions.

The LEP is looking to engage via one proposal which can be managed by a named partner who will receive the funding allocation and lead of elements of delivery of the programme. The partnership may be delivered using a hub and spoke model for example or an alternative approach. The LEP is looking for a pan Humber scheme that will be delivered in full by March 2021.

The opportunity to bid for this work will be launched in December 2018 with a closing date of around 4 weeks for the initial Expression of Interest (EOI). The process will then follow the LEP’s project decision making process as outlined in the Assurance Framework.

This meeting is designed to drive thinking behind the call to ensure the commissioned project is effective and appropriate to economic growth.
