Humber Local Enterprise Partnership

We’re driving the growth of the Humber economy for the benefits of our communities in the four local authority areas of Hull, East Riding, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire.

We have an unprecedented opportunity to improve the fortunes of the Humber region and have identified three key ambitions that will help us and those working with us to help the Humber achieve lasting growth and prosperity:

As our name suggests we are a partnership so we lead on the strategy to maximise the opportunities in the Humber and collaborate with those best placed to deliver key programmes and projects to achieve the ambitions.

As the lead agency for the Humber economic strategy we collaborate with local businesses small, medium and large, local authorities, education and training providers and central government through our staff and our board, sub boards, working groups and consultation workshops.

To support the activity we bid for funding, the devolution of powers and lobby for infrastructure support and policy change that can help to break down the barriers to growth.

The Humber Skills Pledge

Organisation: Humber Local Enterprise Partnership

Investing in skills and training has significant benefits for your business, your employees, our community and local economy. The Humber Local Enterprise Partnership’s campaign encourages and helps businesses access vital skills and training organisations to help them succeed and grow, in turn providing a big boost to the economy in this area.

The Humber Skills Pledge provides a real opportunity for local people in terms of employment while allowing businesses in this region to become more competitive, more resilient and ready for economic change, backed by a vibrant, multi-skilled workforce. Aiming to bridge the gap and encourage joint working between education, employers, training providers, local councils and organisations, such as Jobcentre Plus, this campaign will ensure up-to-date information on skills and training is widely communicated. Creating one point of call for businesses to access training and skills information, the Humber Skills Pledge removes any stress and complexity for companies, providing much needed guidance, advice, resources and related initiatives which could see their business grow.
