LCR Health and Care Skills for Growth Agreement- Stakeholder Engagement

Since it was established in 2010, The Employment and Skills Board has produced a suite of Skills for Growth documents to communicate the current and future skills needs of businesses to schools, colleges, training providers and universities.

These agreements are intended to inform curriculum planning, new training provision and the design of employment and skills policy by providing an up-to-date sectoral overview-  as well as summarising both the current and future challenges and opportunities within a particular sector.

In keeping with the approach now taken for developing the forthcoming Skills Strategy for the Liverpool City Region, we are now presenting the Skills for Growth Agreement for Health and Care for wider consultation.

Human Health and Social Work activities is the largest sector by employment, representing 12.5 per cent of total employment in England and 14 per cent of employment in the North West. It is an especially significant employment area within the Liverpool City Region economy where it represents almost 18 per cent of total employment.

To ensure that more people are given the opportunity to feedback their views on how we implement and use the Skills for Growth Agreement we are asking for the attached brief questionnaire to be completed and sent back to us. 

This will allow the final agreement of the new Health and Care Skills for Growth Agreement by the Employment and Skills Board and Combined Authority early in the new year.
