From September 2021, 11 Accredited Chambers of Commerce, across eight areas in England will be working with their business communities, local education and training providers and other key stakeholders to develop Local Skills Improvement Plans as part of the Department for Education’s Skills Accelerator Programme. The Department for Education has asked BCC to play a part in supporting these Accredited Chambers of Commerce and contribute to the effectiveness and efficiency of this important programme of work.
The Local Skills Improvement Plans aim to transform the responsiveness of local skills systems in meeting the changing skills needs of employers.
This is an opportunity to be part of a ‘Trailblazer’ programme with the potential to be part of a longer-term national rollout subject to the success of the pilots and ongoing Government funding.
You will report to the Co-Executive Directors of the BCC who have been managing this programme to date and will receive support and insight from others across the BCC team. Subject to funding agreement, BCC will also recruit a programme administrator to report to you directly and a data analyst for lead on that aspect of the project.
