Issue details

Skills and Employment Update

Purpose of report: To update the Executive Member on the skills and employment support available to residents and businesses within York and how the council has worked with partners to:
• align and, where possible, adapt existing public-funded provision
• shape local implementation of new national initiatives
• communicate support available to residents, young people and businesses
• signpost York’s emerging and future skills needs to influence the development of
York and & North Yorkshire LEP plans.
In addition to updating on actions to respond to the immediate economic impact of Covid-19 on employment, the report will also provide an updated timeline for the development of a city skills strategy. It will focus on the progress made by the Skills and Employment Board’s Task & Finish Group to build an evidence base that will underpin the one-year plan and 10-year strategy.

What will the report ask Members to do:
The Executive Member will be asked to note the activity detailed in the skills and employment update report. The Executive Member will also be asked to support and approve the updated timeline for completion and sign off of the one-year plan.
