Our board is made up of volunteers representing employers, the public sector and training organisations. It is employer-led to make sure that our work is driven by the needs of employers and to ensure that future skills provision meets the needs of employers and the local economy.

An executive steering group serves the board, representing local authorities at district and county level, the Skills Funding Agency, National Apprenticeship Service and Jobcentre Plus.

As well as providing input at board meetings, our volunteer board members act individually to champion our aspirations and raise awareness of the Board’s initiatives amongst other employers and providers.

Following the introduction of the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership in December 2010 it was agreed that Employment and Skills Board would continue to lead on the skills agenda, providing expertise and advice to the LEP where needed and seeking support when appropriate.

Our Chairman is a Member of the LEP Board.

The LEP Chairman has written to some key employment and skills partners emphasising the importance of the ESB in respect of local employment and skills strategic developments.

The Secretariat function of both Boards is managed by Economy teams within Lincolnshire County Council. They ensure that enquiries to the LEP around the skills agenda are directed to the Employment and Skills Board, and enquiries to the Employment and Skills Board are directed to the LEP when needed.
