The Challenge of Developing Your Growth and Skills Strategy.

The demand to drive growth and address skills issues, especially through the Local Industrial Strategy and Skills Advisory Panels, means that LEPs are under pressure to ensure that their strategy is highly effective and enables limited resources to be deployed for maximum impact. Our aim is to offer your organisation the kind of robust insight that will help you achieve this.
