HEY LEP’s Employment and Skills Team have refreshed the Local Skills Report first published in Spring 2021, to bring it up to date with the latest skills-related indicators provided by the Department for Education’s SAP Programme Team as well local analysis, skills information and case studies for the HEY region. The aim of the Local Skills Report is to influence local partners to match the provision offer against employer skills demand.
The report will also be used to inform the HEY LEP Employment and Skills Strategy which will be published by April 2022.
Local Skills Reports are underpinned by a set of core indicators, a selection of skills related data provided by the DfE’s SAP Programme Team, with supporting local analysis and intelligence.
Local Skills Reports are a requirement of all Skills Advisory Panels (SAP) and provide a clear and consistent view of local skills needs to help partners to respond to labour market needs. In Hull & East Yorkshire the SAP role is fulfilled by the HEY LEP Employment & Skills Board. Local Skills Reports will also feed intelligence to the central government, including the national level Skills and Productivity Board .
The report reflects the work of the former Humber LEP and includes a wide range of skills-related indicators, analysis, intelligence and case studies for the Humber and the HEY region.
The HEY LEP has created a live Skills Dashboard which includes key indicators and statistical data informing local decision-makers and stakeholders on the HEY skills environment and provides an evidence base of the local labour and skills landscape.
The dashboard is reviewed annually with the Local Skills Report and automatically updates depending on the source of the data.
