Releasing our potential

The Hertfordshire Skills and Employment Strategy helps to ensure that the county’s workforce and future labour market are best equipped to meet employers’ needs.

The strategy has been in place since 2015 and is a dynamic driver of enterprise, investment and key sector growth. It was produced by Hertfordshire LEP, Hertfordshire County Council and the Department for Work and Pensions and was last revised in 2017.

Refreshing the strategy

Hertfordshire's Recovery Plan 2020, created in response to COVID-19, sets out an ambitious agenda that puts people and skills at the heart of economic recovery. The pandemic has had a particularly adverse effect on the classes of 2020/21 and other school leavers, apprentices and older workers. The need for collective leadership on skills development is more important than ever.

The Hertfordshire Skills and Employment Strategy is once again being updated to reflect the current economic landscape and to chart a clear route forward.

A county-wide strategy provides stakeholders with a common platform against which to align their own strategies; strengthened justification and evidence for securing funding; and an overview of the high-level interventions required to support our economy and people.

Stakeholders are invited to give their views at consultation webinars taking place on Thursday 28 January and Thursday 25 February 2021.
