Careers Strategy Showcase events held by D2N2 LEP

Leading careers and skills professionals, and others interested in helping to develop the best possible workforce have attended two D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership events this week.

The two D2N2 LEP Careers Strategy Showcase events were held yesterday (May 8) at The Hayes Conference Centre in Swanwick, Derbyshire, and today (May 9) at the Nottingham Excelsior Suites venue in Lortas Road.

Delegates attended the events to hear about the importance of a highly skilled workforce to the area’s economic prosperity, and how this can be fostered through stronger links between employers and skills and training providers.

The D2N2 LEP is the private sector-led Partnership of business, local authority, skills and training, and community and voluntary services representatives which promotes economic growth across Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.  It works to develop skills and training widely across its area to help young people (and adults) into sustainable, long-term jobs. This ensures that employers have staff with the right skills, to help their individual businesses and the wider LEP area economy to grow.

As part of its People & Skills Strategy, D2N2 and the Government-backed Careers & Enterprise Company fund and run the D2N2 Enterprise Adviser Network (EAN). Across the LEP’s area, ten Enterprise Coordinators aid a growing network of over 90 Enterprise Advisers – volunteers from the business community – in their support of over 100 schools with careers advice strategies; to widen pupils’ experience of and attitudes to the world of work.
