Invitation to tender: Data and Labour Market Intelligence

Cheshire & Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership (C&WLEP) is seeking to secure consultancy support to work with the LEP and other members of the LEP’s Data and Labour Market Steering Group to develop further the first phase of data and labour market information that was completed in December 2019 and, in particular to explore in more depth some of the key issues arising from the first phase of work.

The LEP’s Employers’ Skills and Education Board (which includes the functions of a Skills Advisory Panel) has established a Data and Labour Market Intelligence Group that has been working over the last year to develop data and labour market intelligence that can inform the delivery of the priorities for action of the Employers’ Skills and Education Board (the Pledge, Accelerate and the Digital Skills Partnership) and the development of the curriculum offers across Cheshire and Warrington.

The first phase of work was completed in December 2019 and an initial report was produced which was discussed by the Employers’ Skills and Education Board and the LEP Board on 16 December and the Data and Labour Market Steering Group on 9 December.

In the light of the recent meetings of the Employers’ Skills and Education Board and the Data and Labour Market Steering Group, partners have identified areas of data and labour market intelligence that need further investigation.
