Be part of the future skills plan. Join a workshop to feed into this important agenda.

Sussex Chamber of Commerce was chosen by the Department for Education as one of eight Local Skills Improvement Plan (LSIPs) trailblazer chambers across the country.

The Local Skills Improvement Plan Workshop

Through a collaborative and joined up approach we will generate a local skills improvement plan that truly recognises the skills needs, and more importantly, some of the solutions needed to address these.

Skills have never been a more important topic as we re-open our economy and lives in general and we start to address the post-Covid and post-Brexit world.
