Please Note: This event has been postponed.

Help shape the future of skills provision in Lancashire. Join us at this special roundtable event discussing import and export of goods to and from Lancashire.

The Lancashire Local Skills Improvement Plan (LSIP) is listening to the voice of employers about what skills they need, here the gaps are in current provision, and how these skills should be delivered. Providers have a duty to take note of employers and incorporate their needs into future provision.
