The Humber Skills Pledge

Organisation: Humber Local Enterprise Partnership

Investing in skills and training has significant benefits for your business, your employees, our community and local economy. The Humber Local Enterprise Partnership’s campaign encourages and helps businesses access vital skills and training organisations to help them succeed and grow, in turn providing a big boost to the economy in this area.

The Humber Skills Pledge provides a real opportunity for local people in terms of employment while allowing businesses in this region to become more competitive, more resilient and ready for economic change, backed by a vibrant, multi-skilled workforce. Aiming to bridge the gap and encourage joint working between education, employers, training providers, local councils and organisations, such as Jobcentre Plus, this campaign will ensure up-to-date information on skills and training is widely communicated. Creating one point of call for businesses to access training and skills information, the Humber Skills Pledge removes any stress and complexity for companies, providing much needed guidance, advice, resources and related initiatives which could see their business grow.
