Skills and Employment Board
A skilled, flexible and effective workforce equipped to meet the economic challenges we face is vital for our economy. Read our latest Skills and Labour Market Update.
The Skills and Employment Programme Board exists to maintain and improve the prospects of our workforce and residents. Its current core objectives are to:
• implement Hertfordshire’s Skills Strategy: Releasing our Potential, 2015-2017. This sets out a detailed action plan which takes into account the views and needs of schools, colleges, businesses and other organisations to help increase and develop both our existing and future workforce’s capacity.
• work towards the targets set out in our Apprenticeship Strategy, 2015-2017 and corresponding Apprenticeship Action Plan (revised June 2016). Click on the link below to see the vital role apprenticeships play in growing our local economy.
• co-ordinate the county's approach to STEM-related (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) activities to best meet the needs of our key sector growth areas.
The Skills and Employment Board meets quarterly and is chaired by LEP Board Member Adrian Hawkins, chairman of Weldability Sif.
Hertfordshire LEP’s Skills and Labour Market Review 2014, looks into the demand for labour and skills, the supply of labour, education and training activity and comparing labour supply and demand within the county.
