Sussex Chamber of Commerce has published its Sussex Local Skills Improvement Plan (LSIP) and associated documents which are now available on theSussex Chamber website. The chamber received LSIP Trailblazer funding from the DfE to see how such an employer-led plan could be developed and it is hoped that these documents will help Government understand the process used to research, consult and inform the development of the LSIP. The chamber says it has fed in many of the lessons they have learned along the way directly into the LSIP policy team at DfE and await further information on how they as a Chamber will be supported to continue this process over the next 3-5 years.
In addition to the main LSIP report, they have published a Business Edition of the LSIP, which draws out the key points and actions/directions of travel for all audiences.
The chamber says that the publication of these documents represents only the start of the journey, and that they will seek to work with partners from across Sussex on the range of measures within the Future Skills Sussex Improvement Framework (Annex 2).
The chamber aims to hold an LSIP launch and next steps event in late May and more information regarding this and the initial activities will be coming out after Easter.
