Build Your LEPs Growth & Skills Strategy Upon Solid Insight

Pressure from the Government on LEPs to really drive regional growth and address key skills challenges is greater than ever. We can help you with this.

The Challenge of Developing Your Growth and Skills Strategy.

The demand to drive growth and address skills issues, especially through the Local Industrial Strategy and Skills Advisory Panels, means that LEPs are under pressure to ensure that their strategy is highly effective and enables limited resources to be deployed for maximum impact. Our aim is to offer your organisation the kind of robust insight that will help you achieve this.

How can we Help You?

Having a thorough understanding of the economic landscape in your area is a crucial factor in being able to take the right strategic decisions that will ultimately help increase growth and close the skills gaps in your area.

We are currently working with over 1/3 of LEPs in the country, providing them with this understanding through our holistic and highly granular LMI, as well more specific data and analysis answering some of the more niche questions that LEPs have.

How Can Our Data Solve Your Challenges?

Our insight is delivered to you through our online data tool, Analyst, as well as more bespoke consulting to answer the more specific challenges you are facing.


Analyst gives you instant access to key insight on jobs, skills and industries, down to 4-digit SIC and SOC classifications at the Local Authority level, making it the most granular overview of your economy available. Amongst many other features, the tool allows you to:

  • Identify sectors that give your area a competitive advantage

  • Understand and compare skills supply and demand in your region


We understand that unique challenges require unique solutions. By working with you to identify the specific questions you need answering, we can offer you a fully customisable consulting experience, tailored to your area, that will give you detailed analysis on challenges such as:

  • Demand and supply for skills and higher skills in your area
