Rutland is a small rural unitary authority situated in the south-east of the East Midlands. It is bordered by Lincolnshire, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire. The geographic county covers a sparsely populated rural area of 392km2 with a population of 34,500 and a population density of 88 persons per km2. There are two small market towns of Oakham (the administrative centre) and Uppingham and over forty villages of varying size and nature. The county has large areas of farmland and is dominated by Rutland Water, an Anglian Water reservoir located at the centre of the County.

“Rutland County Council is very pleased to be represented on the Lincolnshire and Rutland Employment and Skills Board. It is vital that we collectively work together to ensure not only that we meet the  skills needs of employers now but that we identify future needs and have in place the infrastructure to support these”,  Roger Begy, Leader, Rutland County Council
