Employment and Skills Board
The Lincolnshire & Rutland Employment and Skills Board was set up in 2009 to champion learning, education and skills, locally and nationally, on behalf of local employers and employees. It provides a link between local economic development needs and strategic planning.
Its role is to shape and influence employment and skills support to meet the needs of employers in Lincolnshire and Rutland.
Its aim is to boost economic development by creating a more highly skilled local workforce which will attract new employment opportunities.
The board is employer led, made up of 15 volunteers representing local employers, training organisations and public sector. An Executive Steering Group serves the board, representing local authorities at district and county level, the Skills Funding Agency, the National Apprenticeship Service and Jobcentre Plus.
The Lincolnshire and Rutland Employment and Skills Plan, "Towards a better place to work and learn", was published in July 2010. This was produced my members of the partnership and forms the basis of Board priorities. A summary and full version can be found on the Board website www.lincsrutlandesb.com|
