  • Good Example of partnership working
  • Clearer demand from LEP’s required – but very useful exercise
  • Timescales too tight.
  • Earlier clarity on policy guidelines for a new programme.
  • Potential “conflict of interest” in decision making process – need more transparency.
  • Introduce funding which is not annual.
  • Further training/briefing for all involved.
challenges going forward
Challenges Going Forward
  • Improving understanding of local needs/opportunities e.g local prospectus, Regional Skills Assessments going forward.
  • Need to understand impact of work programme leavers on EF.
  • Sharing information
  • Conflict of interest.
