Supporting the growth of the Lancashire economy by developing people's skills

Creating sustainable skills and employment to drive prosperity is key to Lancashire’s future – and to ensure this happens the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership has created a Skills and Employment Board and the Lancashire Skills and Employment Hub.

Skills and Employment Board

The Skills and Employment  Board was established in 2013 and it considers skills and employment priorities within the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership’s (LEP) area.

The LEP spans the areas supported by Lancashire County Council, Blackburn with Darwen Unitary Authority and Blackpool Unitary Authority.

Lancashire is one of the largest local economies in the North of England with a population of 1.5m people, Lancashire’s economy generates over £33bn in Gross Value Added with 52,000 businesses, supporting 730,000 jobs.

Lancashire Skills and Employment Hub

We are a strategic team of experienced professionals, who are the engine behind the Skills and Employment Board supporting them and enabling a balanced, skilled and inclusive labour market which underpins and contributes to economic well-being and growth across the LEP.

We have developed an evidence base to help us identify skills and employment issues across Lancashire. This evidence base, alongside consultation with stakeholders, has been used to develop a Lancashire Skills and Employment Strategic Framework, which underpins everything we do.

The Strategic Framework sets out the skills and employment priorities for Lancashire and we work in partnership with a wide range of partners and stakeholders to achieve the objectives set out in the framework.
