Details

Skills Advisory Panels (SAPs) will help Mayoral Combined Authorities (MCAs), the Greater London Authority (GLA) and Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) fulfil their local leadership role in the skills system. SAPs bring together employers, local authorities, universities, colleges and other training providers to:

  • work together to pool their knowledge and expertise
  • decide what skills are really needed across a sub-region

This helps ensure we match training to the jobs available in the local area.

In the financial year 2020 to 2021, the funding supported each of the 36 SAPs to:

  • continue to build and increase analytical capability sustainably
  • build influence and local leadership role
  • produce a local skills report

A key part entails embedding the Skills Advisory Panels analytical toolkit to build robust evidence on local skills needs, wider labour market challenges and priorities, to inform their local skills agenda.

The Secretary of State for Education makes grant determinations under section 31 of the Local Government Act 2003.
