The panel shapes and influences employment and skills support to meet the needs of employers and communities in Greater Lincolnshire.

Following the introduction of the Greater Lincolnshire LEP in 2010, it was agreed that the Employment and Skills Advisory Panel would continue to lead on the skills agenda, providing expertise and advice to the LEP. 

The Employment and Skills Advisory Panel provides the local ‘knowledge link’ and employer voice, to influence nationally designed schemes and funding.

The panel comprises volunteers representing employers, the public sector, and training organisations. It is employer-led to ensure that our work is driven by the needs of employers and that future skills provision meets the needs of employers and the local economy. Our volunteer board members act individually to champion our aspirations and raise awareness of the board's initiatives amongst other employers and providers.

The panel establishes short-life working groups to achieve some of its ambitions, providing a small focus group of interested members to tackle specific topics.

If you are interested in the work of the Employment and Skills Advisory Panel please contact the Chair or the LEP Skills Manager, Clare Hughes on greaterlincslep@lincolnshire.gov.uk.
