Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership is committed to ensuring that the county has a vibrant skills system that is responsive to both current and future economic needs and offers excellent learning environments and opportunities.
It is playing an increasingly active role in the provision of skills development and training opportunities for the county, in particular by helping to align skills provision with the needs of employers, young people, the current workforce and those not currently in employment.
The county’s skills priorities are structured into four themes informed by labour market information and direct input from employers and skills providers:
- Helping young people with future skills, careers and enterprise
- Tackling unemployment
- Skills development for the current workforce
- Advanced and higher levels skills
