LSIP Introductory pictureLancashire’s Local Skills Improvement Plan is part of the government’s Skills Accelerator, which aims to reshape the technical skills system to better support the needs of the local labour market and the wider economy.

Local Skills Improvement Plans are now being rolled out across the UK and Fylde Council are in support and searching for local businesses who wish to have their say.

In Lancashire, the Local Skills Improvement Plan is being led by North and Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce and East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce.

The first report was carried out in 2021 and can be read here
