Skills Strategies and Action Plans

Ensuring that employers have access to the right supply of appropriately skilled labour is central to successful economic development.  Now more than ever, the supply of skills must become better aligned with business need in order for growth sectors to achieve their full potential and other sectors of strategic importance to thrive.  To achieve this requires clear strategies and action plans that are deliverable, affordable and have the support of all key partners.

Ekosgen work with clients across the country to develop comprehensive skills strategies and action plans, providing clear direction on the most appropriate interventions given local priorities, growth forecasts and funding opportunities.

Our skills strategies and action plans are based upon an in-depth appreciation of local economic contexts, major capital investment programmes and the specialisms and strengths of the skill provider network.  We have experience  of developing strategies and action plans for specific sectors and at cross-sector level, in doing so working in close partnership with leading private sector experts and representatives from across the full spectrum of skills providers.  We provide time-bound, realistic recommendations, against which lead organisations and other partners to be involved are clearly identified.
