Effective world class skills system

The Skills Advisory Panel wants to understand and communicate the current and future needs of our key sectors and businesses and ensure the skills providers meets those skills needs.

We want to provide a strong strategic influence and leadership within the region on education, training and employability by acting as a forum for organisations, including public sector bodies, private sector businesses and third sector organisations, schools, colleges and other education and training providers.

We have a range of skills programmes, targeted at our key sectors. These aim to ensure people in Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire, whatever their age, can take advantage of the growing opportunities in our area.

Our Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering Hub is an acclaimed project provided by colleges and businesses which has already made a difference to hundreds of people.
