Organisations who support young people into work, apprenticeships or other opportunities can also utilise the resource to convey what local opportunities are available and, what skills are needed across sectors. The LLEP is keen to raise awareness of the array of local industries and employers across the area, to help young people with informed career decisions.

Anna Cyhan, LLEP Skills Officer, collates the guide each year, and works closely with the LLEP Careers Hub. For other LLEP careers resources access this link

There is a growing variety of area labour market resources, and new offers linked to the Careers Hub and Local Skills Improvement Plan; exciting developments will be announced in the near future!

The resources and wider work done across the LLEP Skills team and Careers Hub (on areas like digital skills, apprenticeships, and education-business links) are part of an area skills strategy, supported by partnership work from organisations such as: area skills providers, DWP, local authorities, districts, universities and both the voluntary and community sector. The overall aims are to raise levels of area skills, increase productivity and to help employers to address their skills gaps.
