Through our ESIF activity and wider partnership work we will establish a strong pathway of seamless and intensive support for local young people and adults to help them into education, training and employment including:

  • Enhanced information advice and guidance
  • Stronger education-business links
  • Local labour market information
  • Capital investment to improve skills infrastructure
  • ESF Skills Support, including a Leicester and Leicestershire Employment Hub
  • Growth area and priority sector skill plans

The pages above set out how this is being done.

The LLEP is often asked for employer contacts for projects, and/or to support people into positive outcomes. Whilst we do not have business databases that we can share, you can download a guide on business sources at the bottom of this page.
