Technical Education Vision

Read about Lancashire's aspirations for the best Technical Education system to support local business


Lancashire’s Technical Education Vision brings together stakeholders, education providers and business, recognising the need to build a high performing system to address skills shortages and boost productivity.

Lancashire is the first LEP to produce a defined Technical Education Vision for the local area. We recognised a need for  a Technical Education Vision due to recent rapid policy, technological and economic developments. Consultation with partners has resulted in a flexible and future facing vision which will support the development of Technical Education in Lancashire.

The Lancashire Technical Education Vision aims to:

  • Grow the productivity of Lancashire’s workers and businesses
  • Anticipate and respond to market and technology change, with provision that is driven by employer demand
  • Start with careers education and experiences at primary school level and support individuals at all points in their working lives
  • Work to ensure providers and employers collaborate on the design and delivery of education and training
  • Provide a co-ordinated and joined-up offer to learners and employers, through collective planning and management

A  key aim of this Vision is to provide consensus and direction for Lancashire’s ambitions for our Technical Education system. Essential to this is an understanding of the labour market demands that the education sector is seeking to meet, and the patterns of labour supply.
