Since November 2021, the Lancashire Local Skills Improvement Plan (LSIP), one of eight trailblazer projects across the UK led by the North and Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce and supported by the East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce and Industry, has been busy conducting research and gathering evidence to help understand where and why technical skills gaps exist across the county.

We’ll be reporting our findings to Government at the end of March 2022, but you can get an early insight into the themes that have been emerging at our forthcoming LSIP skills roadshow event for businesses based in East Lancashire, covering Blackburn and Darwen.

The event will take place at Blackburn College on Wednesday 9th February, from 12.00pm until 2.00pm. Lunch will be provided. Click here for full details and to register 

As well as LSIP project manager, Geoff Mason, you’ll also hear from representatives of the Lancashire Skills & Employment Hub about its existing skills work, and from Blackburn College about how local employers can engage with it to boost workforce development.

You’ll also be invited to participate in facilitated discussions aimed at generating ideas for closing the skills gaps and removing barriers to reskilling and upskilling. These will then be put to a vote, with the results displayed live on screen in real time. It’s an opportunity for you to contribute to the changes needed to ensure that technical skills provision is better matched to employer needs and accessible to all.

Places are strictly limited and available on a first come basis. Save your seat here so you don’t miss out.
