Business leaders needed to shape skills in the Solent

16 September 2020

We are looking for two business leaders to join our Solent Skills Advisory Panel.

Alongside our immediate work to support businesses and the recovery of the Solent area from the economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are also responsible for determining local economic priorities and undertaking activities aimed at driving economic growth and the creation of local jobs.

The Skills Advisory Panel was established in 2019 to bring local employers, skills providers and other key stakeholders together, to share knowledge on skills and labour market needs. The Panel is helping to enhance the LEP's understanding and ability to address key local skills challenges, ensuring the Solent has a skilled workforce for future ambitions.

Rachael Randall, our Lead for Skills on our Board said, “Skills are at the very heart of the Solent LEP’s ambition for recovery, growth and prosperity and we have already invested more than £30m to enhance employer-led skills provision across the area. The Skills Advisory Panel plays a critical role in ensuring that we build on this progress, moving forward with the development of a new skills strategy and action plan for the area.”

We are especially interested in hearing from senior business leaders working in sectors including: Life Science & Healthcare; Transport& Logistics; and Clean / Green Technology.

Applications will close at 23:59 on Friday 9 October 2020.
