The Department of Education (DfE) requires all LEPs and Combined Authorities to produce a Local Skills Report by 31st March 21. The reports support government’s aim of ensuring local colleges and other skills providers are firmly linked to local business needs and the vision for ‘upskilling, reskilling and retraining’. The Reports aim to influence local partners and feed intelligence to the central government, including the national level Skills and Productivity Board (SPB). They are to be updated on an annual basis with a fuller refresh every two years.
The Hull and East Yorkshire LEP will be publishing its Local Skills Report once the new HEY LEP Board have met and agreed the skills priorities. Until then we are publishing the Core Indicator annexe which provides a wide range of skills-related indicators, analysis and intelligence for the new HEY LEP area as well as information for the wider Humber region.
