The identification of the high level skill needs of employers (NVQ level 4 equivalent or above) and provision of tailored training programmes to meet those needs.
The project aims to achieve a step change in employer engagement with higher level skills. This will ensure that there is a significant increase in the proportion of the NW workforce with higher level skills and therefore an improvement in the knowledge economy of the region.
The NW Model is driven by demand and the encouragement of employer investment in skills. Therefore the model is based on two aspects: brokerage and the development and delivery of new provision which meets employer demand.
The project is currently available for 4 Sectors (‘Advanced Engineering and Materials’, ‘Digital and Creative Industries’, ‘Business and Professional Services’ and ‘Construction’) and extend the sectors covered by the HLSP to include ‘Energy and Environmental Technologies’, ‘Food and Drink’ and ‘Biomedical’.
