Skills and Education Priorities

Cheshire and Warrington is a highly successful economy – our economic strengths are founded on a skilled and talented workforce, with more people qualified to degree level than the national average.

We need to make use of all our talent and with an ageing population and a demand for 71,000 more people qualified to Level 3 or above by 2027, this will be a challenge which cannot be met by the current levels of new entrants to the labour market – it will only be achieved if we skill our existing workforce and ensure that all our young people understand the career and progression opportunities open to them.

Our skills and education priorities have been developed by the LEP’s Employers’ Skills and Education Board, which incorporates the functions of a Skills Advisory Panel, in consultation with local partners. The Skills and Education Plan that was produced in 2018 set out plans for working with businesses and skills and learning providers to ensure that our businesses have the skills they need to grow, and individuals have the skills they need to progress.

In delivering these priorities, we will be inclusive, agile, deliver with pace and keep it simple. We will be data and labour market intelligence and stakeholder feedback driven, recognising the changing environment.
