The pillar of People’ describes and supports the elements of the Strategy for Growth which deal explicitly with the most important resource within the Greater Birmingham & Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership – our people.

Central to GBSLEP’s vision for employment and skills are three key themes; Ignite, Accelerate and Retune.

Working to align the skills base and skills provision with the job opportunities now and in the future for the LEP, ‘People’ is focused on ensuring the people within the GBSLEP are benefitting from the opportunities being created and all sharing in the benefits of growth in wealth and economic activity.

Consultation with businesses across the LEP has consistently shown that skills is one of the most fundamental issues they want to see addressed and improved. Accordingly, skills is prioritised as a fundamental theme within this pillar.
