Skills standard praise for Humber LEP
Humber LEP recognises gold standard companies
By Grimsby Telegraph | Posted: 3 Jan 2018
THE Humber Local Enterprise Partnership is the first LEP in the country to have achieved a national licence as an awarding body for the Quality in Careers Standard.
One of only 12 national holders, it follows the submission of an extremely strong application to the Quality and Careers Standard Consortium.
As a result of this licensing award, the 21 schools, colleges and training organisations that have met the LEP’s Gold Standard have also received praise and are validated at national level.
This puts the Humber region in a position of real advantage, as the LEP and its partners look to address the skills issues in our area.
Stephen Savage, former Grimsby solicitor and chair of the Humber LEP Employment and Skills Board said: “This licence is credit to the work that we have achieved thus far, working with our partners and the education providers in the Humber region.
“Those providers who have achieved our Humber Gold Standard should be very proud of all their hard work.
“We are pleased that our submission to the Quality and Careers Standard Consortium was well received and we realise that this licence gives the Humber LEP and the region another strong asset to showcase.”
