Learning, Skills & Innovation Partnership (LSkIP)

The Learning, Skills and Innovation Partnership (LSkIP) for South East Wales was formally established following a stakeholder event on 24 September 2014 and is one of three regional skills partnerships across Wales formally recognised by the Deputy Minister for Technology and Skills, Julie James AM on 10 October 2014.

The Learning, Skills and Innovation Partnership (LSkIP) is supported within the context of the Welsh Government Policy Statement on Skills and Skills Implementation Plan, which defines four key roles for regional skills partnerships. 

 

(1) To produce and analyse labour market information aligned to economic intelligence to inform the skills requirements in the regions and inform our future priorities for funding linked to our co-investment policy.

(2) To provide a mechanism to review regional skills provision and advise Welsh Government on future prioritisation of skills funding in line with regional employment and skills needs.

(3) To act as a strategic body effectively representing regional interests to inform a demand-led and sustainable skills system, ensuring that this is informed by strong industry engagement and takes into account the level of skills utilisation in the region.

(4) To act collectively and strategically to maximise future available funds acknowledging the likely reduction in public funds over the coming years.

 

Furthermore, partnerships must be demand-led and inclusive, involving industry and working with the Cardiff Capital Region, City Deal and Enterprise Zones to prioritise skills delivery in response to economic need.
