Skills Support

Working Together

D2N2 has benefited from Nottingham City Council's successful application to the Government’s City Skills Fund for capacity funding to support strategic skills work across the D2N2 area.

Skills partners within the LEP are making plans to formalise their relationship with the LEP, to oversee the production of D2N2’s first Skills Plan and establish a LEP Skills Observatory to ensure that skills planning and provision in the D2N2 area is informed by accurate, up to date data.

D2N2 Skills Plan

The Skills Plan will be a key resource for all providers of education and skills (including schools and academies, FE colleges, private training providers and Universities) as it will identify the priority and growth areas in the LEP’s economy. All providers will be able to use the Skills Plan to inform their own Business Planning and to revise their Skills Offer to reduce the identified skills shortages of their communities and to meet the needs of their local employers.
