In 2013, we developed a Skills Plan for our Enterprise Zone at MIRA Technology Park. The EZ is destined to make a significant contribution to our local economy, with plans to create over 2,000 jobs, many of which will be highly skilled and specialist engineering roles.
We launched the MIRA Skills Plan on 16 April 2013. The Plan focuses on building and maintaining the supply of STEM-based skills that the Technology Park requires.
MIRA and other businesses are continuing to work together with training providers such as colleges and other partners to make sure that the local labour market has the necessary skills to meet the needs of businesses both now and in the future.
The Plan is also influencing the way colleges and other training providers are developing their offer to young people and adults. Colleges are working together in partnership to address these issues.
