The Northern Strategic Employers Group (NSEG) brings together larger businesses, this time in Kendal. The cross-sector group allows senior colleagues to discuss opportunities and issues that affect them both presently and in the future.
The Local Skills Improvement Plan (LSIP) will be the topic for this first meeting. The focus of LSIPs is to put employer needs at the heart of skills planning and delivery.
Skills are fundamental to every business and to the success of Cumbria, so it would be great if you, or a senior colleague, could join us and get involved in the discussion:
Wednesday 26th January, 7.30am – 9.00am at Stonecross Manor Hotel, Milnthorpe Road, Kendal, LA9 5HP. We are monitoring the Covid situation closely and following guidance, in the occasion guidance changes, this event will be moved online.
There is no charge for attending.
LSIPs are a key plank in new legislation covering post-16 education. This is designed to put employers at the heart of the system so that education and training leads to jobs that can improve productivity and fill skills gaps.
- Investing in higher-level technical qualifications that provide a valuable alternative to a university degree
- Making sure people can access training and learning flexibly throughout their lives and are well-informed about what is on offer through great careers support
- Reforming funding and accountability for providers to simplify how funds are allocated, give providers more autonomy, and ensure an effective accountability regime which delivers value for money
- Supporting excellent teaching in further education
Cumbria has been selected as one of eight areas in England to ‘trailblaze’ and test LSIPs between now and March 2022, before they are rolled out across England and Wales. This is therefore a great opportunity for you to make your voice heard and influence policy across the UK as well as activity locally.
This event is open to large businesses in the Kendal area, and only one place is available per business. If you’re interested in attending please contact Richard Miller email@example.com.© Cumbria Chamber of Commerce
