The Buckinghamshire Local Skills Report brings together an analysis of the County’s skills
priorities, examples of local employer-education collaboration and sets out an action plan to ensure individuals and employers have the skills they need for future success.
The report is the result of work undertaken by the Buckinghamshire Skills Advisory Panel (SAP) during 2020/21. The Buckinghamshire SAP brings together local employers, skills providers and other key stakeholders to better understand and resolve skills and recruitment challenges within Buckinghamshire on behalf of Buckinghamshire Local Enterprise Partnership.
Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) are required by the Department for Education (DfE) to work with their SAP to produce annual Local Skills Reports. The first Buckinghamshire Local Skills Report was published in March 2021.
The Buckinghamshire Local Skills Report provides a framework for skills activity across the County. The report accompanied by a comprehensive evidence base which is intended to inform investment decisions, collaborative activity and curriculum planning of post-16 education and training providers.
Progress towards the activities set out in the Skills Action Plan element of the report will be monitored by the Buckinghamshire SAP on a regular basis.
