To reach the national average

To reach the national average

46,000 less people without any qualifications

26,400 more people with a level 2 qualification (equivalent to 5 GCSEs)

43,800 more people with a level 4 qualification (equivalent to a Degree)

To meet the Government’s 80% employment rate we would need to move an additional 120,000 people into work


Liverpool city region and the work programme

Why we need a strategy

  • To drive a step change in performance in the employment and skills system

  • To provide a unifying framework for partners to address our challenges, opportunities and ambition

  • To achieve a consensus on strategic priorities and the allocation of future funds

  • To facilitate greater employer engagement, influence and leadership

  • To influence the national and regional policy agenda


Liverpool city region and the work programme

The building blocks

  • The vision and aims of our Multi Area Agreement

  • A comprehensive review of the evidence base

  • Consultation with employers, stakeholders and service users to identify shared priorities

  • Changes to policies and institutions

    • Greater focus on Apprenticeships

    • Increasing provider freedom

    • Market-based funding models

  • Severe constraints on public sector budgets


  • Liverpool city region and the work programme

    Employment and skills issues

    • Not enough jobs and not enough high value jobs

    • Skills/qualification levels rising but job opportunities declining

    • Skills/qualification gaps with England narrowed but still remain

    • Persistently high NEET and rising long term youth unemployment

    • Persistent large gaps in worklessness rates and deprivation against national benchmarks

    • Persistent concerns that the system is too complicated for individuals and employers


    Liverpool city region and the work programme

    The strategy

    • Flows from the vision and strategic aims described in the MAA, which we intend to meet by 2030

    • Introduces step change aspirations for employment and skills by 2020

    • Puts in place a small number of strategic objectives which we will meet by 2015

    • Develops a series of strategic projects delivered over the period 2010 up to 2015 to drive forward the strategy


    Liverpool city region and the work programme

    The strategic objectives

    • Investing to support employer skill needs

    • Builds on a shared understanding of needs and priorities

    • Will influence the spend of public sector funding agencies and key funding streams

    • A clear distinction between commissioning at city region level and delivery which will be for the most part local
