Exeter City Council; Skills Strategy

By September 20, 2018January 26th, 2021Member News & Updates, Why Exeter blog

As part our of vision to support all residents and businesses across the city, Exeter City Council is in the process of developing a Skills Strategy.

To do this, we will be looking at a wide range of relevant data that will help us to gain a comprehensive picture of the current situation for the city in terms of its residents and businesses. This will then support decision-making for our own investments, and where we will focus our time and energy in order to make the most difference through our skills delivery plans.

Feedback from businesses across the city about the issues that are important to them in relation to recruitment, training, skills development and retaining staff is an integral part of the strategy development and priority setting.

We have developed a short survey that should take around 5 minutes to complete.  The responses and feedback you are able to give us on the key topics will be incredibly useful to support the development of our priorities and work programmes.  Please take 5 minutes to complete the survey so that your views and experience can be considered as part of the research.

Through the strategy and delivery plans we hope to be able to make a real difference to the opportunities available to everyone, to support our businesses to recruit and retain the right people to enable them to grow and thrive, and to continue to support the development and prosperity of the city through its people.

We will also be looking for business leaders and managers to join our Skills Advisory Board to influence and drive our skills work as the strategy develops. If you would be interested in finding out more about this, or have any queries about the survey, please contact Rosie Bates, Skills Officer: [email protected] or 01392 265344.
