A number of employer engagement workshops are planned for venues across Leicestershire over the coming month. These events are tremendously important for Leicester and Leicestershire businesses, and the input of local businesses people will make a real difference to development, so it is worth attending at least one session.
Skills are vital for economic growth. Without the provision of suitably skilled people, businesses cannot prosper and grow in an increasingly competitive global market place.
In order to understand the future skills needs of Leicester and Leicestershire, the Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership has commissioned York Consulting to undertake a detailed skills needs analysis of the city and county through to the year 2022 and beyond.
A key component of this study will be to understand the views of employers on how and where improvements can be made to the current skills supply system. As a local stakeholder, we want to hear your views and would like to invite business leaders to attend the following meetings which have been specifically organised by York Consulting for businesses working in Leicestershire.
