Emsi 2018 Conference

People Place & Prosperity

Driving Regional Skills & Growth in Challenging Times

Tuesday 15th May

We all know that there are a lot of problems in the British economy at the moment, especially the skills gap and low economic growth.

We know we need to work together better to find solutions before things get worse.

But how can we not only find solutions that work in all the very different local economies throughout the country, but implement them effectively?

Imagine if we could get Education Providers, LEPs and Local Authorities all talking together to find solutions to their regional skills and growth problems.

Imagine what would might happen if these organisations were to work closer together to find solutions that benefit their communities.
