Session Details

Keynote 2: Skills - A Call For Change

Astor Suite: 11.30am - 12.00pm
The Kent Invicta Chamber was appointed by the Government, as one of 8 national trailblazers to put together a Local Skills Improvement Plan (LSIP), to identify the skill needs of businesses and map against provision, then put forward a case for change in skills delivery. 
THE LSIP is part of a combined effort to make technical further education more responsive to the changing skills needs of local employers and the county's economy. It has presented the evidence of employer demand and outlines how further education partners will respond.

The Plan is a "trailblazer"; it is a developing plan and it sets out how we, the Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce, will continue to build evidence and engagement into the future.

Benefits of attending:
  • Update on the LSIP progress - sharing the final report
  • Opportunity to be involved in the ongoing programme
  • Chance to influence further education to provide the skills your business needs

Opening Times:
09.00am - 4.00pm
