Skills Gap Reports
Hull College commissioned a series of Skills Gap Reports as part of the original Skills Support for the Workforce (SSW) project in 2015, copies of the reports covering seven key sectors are available below. The new SSW project will be revisiting these sector reports as part of the current programme.
EU Funded Employment & Skills Support in the Humber
The Humber LEP and Humber Learning Consortium have pulled together a document which summarises all the EU Funded Employment and Skills Support that is offered in the Humber. This document builds on the success of the EU Funded Business Support Handbook that was published earlier this year. The document includes information on the programmes that are being delivered in the Humber through the Humber ESIF Programme as well as those of our neighbouring LEPs. It also includes other non-EU funded programmes which are of relevance. The document is available on the LEP website here.
Humber Summer Schools Conference
The Humber Summer Schools Conference showcased the latest developments and the range of support available to young people within the education and skills arena locally and nationally. It focussed on the career landscape, apprenticeship reforms and the economic changes brought about by the emerging sectors, including renewables. Details from conference can be found here:

50 + Working Group
The LEP is committed to ensuring that residents aged 50 plus have the opportunity to contribute to the local economy. Aligned with the government’s Fuller Working Lives agenda, the LEP has ensured that ESF investments target this key group of people. Employers often report that this age group has excellent employability skills, which combined with experience, can drive business growth. Employers are encouraged to retain, retrain and recruit older workers. To find out more about this work please contact the LEP Skills Team.

In November 2015 businesses, recruiters and HR managers from across the Humber region came together to discuss and look at solutions to make sure the Humber addresses an inevitable skills gap. We shared information and looked for solutions on how to retain, retrain and recruit the over-50s.
