The purpose of Local Skills Improvement Plans is to put employers firmly at the centre of local skills systems, working in partnership with colleges and other providers and informed by key stakeholders such as local authorities, to shape technical skills provision so that it better supports the local economy and boosts this country’s productivity. Mayoral Combined Authorities play a vital role across their local skills system and will be consulted in the development of Local Skills Improvement Plans.
