Regional Skills Partnership
The Skills and Employment workstream of the North Wales Economic Ambition Board has been adopted and recognised by the Welsh Government as one of its three Regional Skills Partnerships (RSPs) across Wales.
Working as part of a ‘Team North Wales’ approach, partners from industry, education & training, health, third sector, national & local government, and employer representative bodies amongst others, are all working towards our continued collective vision for a confident, cohesive region with sustainable economic growth, capitalising on the success of high value economic sectors and its connection to the economies of the Northern Powerhouse and Ireland.
We continue to look forward to how our innovative approach to delivery in partnership with both employers and providers, will help to continue to improve and upgrade the regions skills base.
This will be an encompassing approach that both targets improving the supply of advanced skills in high value economic clusters, in addition to addressing worklessness and in-work poverty via mechanisms that address the causes of economic inactivity and barriers to employment.
With skills being a cross-cutting theme that both complements and contributes to other key areas of work including supply chains, infrastructure, transport, and inward investment, we will continue as an RSP to work closely with, and support partners in these areas, to further promote North Wales, and our cross-border partners to build upon our strengths, opportunities, and diversity of talent.
