Sector Skills Plans – Our Sector Skills Plans will identify key priorities for each of the key growth and employment sectors in our area. The plans will identify the main skills needs of the sectors as well as a set of agreed actions to help ensure these needs are met. An evidence base/dataset upon which these plans are based are also available to view. To view completed plans and evidence bases please click here.

Capital funding for skills projects – Further and higher education projects benefit from capital funding through our Growth Deal. You can find out more about our Growth Deal and the projects it has funded here.
