Skills Pledge Campaign scoops National Award – One Year On

One year ago, the Humber LEP was awarded the NIACE President’s Award for it’s Skills Pledge Campaign at an event to celebrate Adult Learners Week.

Whilst members of the team and the wider partnership were there to receive the award, it was done on behalf of each and every one of our Skills Pledge sign-ups, our network of partners and our community and residents as a whole.

Since receiving the award, the Skills Pledge campaign has continued to go from strength to strength with 366 organisations now signed up across the Humber.  Of this number:

  • 201 sign-ups report they are already actively investing in increasing the skills of their workforce
  • 106 sign-ups report they are already mentoring a budding entrepreneur
  • 170 sign-ups report that they are already actively offering work placements to young people or adults
  • 162 sign-ups report they are already actively offering apprenticeships / traineeships
  • 97 sign-ups report they are already actively employing or have employed a graduate
  • 193 sign-ups report they are already actively supporting the development of employability skills

The Skills Pledge continues to play a vital part in championing skills in our region, giving sign-ups a platform to share their case studies, opportunities and good news stories.  The campaign only works with input from those signed up so if you’ve got a news story, something to share, ideas to take the campaign even further or simply need pointing in the right direction to fulfil your pledge, contact Ann Newlove on a.newlove@humberlep.org
