Employers encouraged to share skills gap and training needs in D2N2 survey

D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), working with Serco, is seeking the views of local employers on the challenges of getting the skills they need following the pandemic, particularly at higher skills levels.

As part of ongoing efforts to increase skill levels in our region’s businesses so they can grow and become more productive, D2N2 is seeking to understand what training provision would benefit the region’s businesses, both in current circumstances and under more normal business conditions.

This is a vehicle for employers to demonstrate their needs for future skills provision and help to shape future delivery in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. The research findings will help shape the development of free training to support productivity in local industries.

D2N2 is keen to hear from employers of all sizes (including sole traders) and from all sectors and those interested in giving their view should complete the Survey before the deadline of 6th June 2021.

A 50p donation for each completed survey response (for the first 200 responses) will be made to the Good Things Foundation which supports digitally and socially excluded people to improve their lives through digital. Those completing the survey can opt to receive a copy of the findings once published.
