Innovative new skills research

Employer call to action to support innovative new skills research with new pilot being launched along side the East Midlands Chamber of Commerce.

For the purpose of this pilot we are seeking businesses in the following sectors to participate: Are you a manufacturing, logistics or sport & physical activity, employer based in #Leicester or #Leicestershire?

We want to hear from a range of people including frontline staff, operations and support staff, team leaders, managers, HR departments or learning and development professionals.

Working across the Leicester and Leicestershire area, the East Midlands Chamber and other partners are looking for employers of all sizes to support a data gathering project to help to share the future of skills training in the region. This is part of the government funded Local Skills Improvement Plan – one of just eight pilot projects taking place around the UK, putting local employers at the centre of skills provision, building stronger links with local colleges and training providers.

The success of this initiative is dependent on the willingness of employers to engage and participate in the completion of data gathering and workshop activity.

It will just take a couple of minutes of your time each day to take part, and you’ll be helping to make technical skills training more responsive to the needs of employers in our area.

If you’re interested in finding out more then we’d love to hear from you – please email for more details!
