The Regional Learning and Skills Partnership For South West and Mid Wales...

Driving investment in skills!

The Regional Learning and Skills Partnership for South West and Mid Wales is one of three regional partnerships in Wales working to drive investment in skills by developing responses based upon local and regional need. We work across the counties of Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion, Neath Port Talbot, Pembrokeshire, Powys and Swansea taking close consideration of the priorities of the Swansea Bay City Region, Growing Mid Wales Partnership, the Haven Waterway Enterprise Zone and Port Talbot Enterprise Zone.

A primarily employer led partnership we strive to work across the region bridging the gap between education and regeneration in the hope of creating a strong and vibrant economy underpinned by innovation, growth and a capable workforce.

Regional Employment and Skills Planning...

We produce an annual Regional Employment and Skills plan based on the analysis of the economic challenges and likely growth areas for our region giving indication of the possible skills requirements for the future.

Additionally, we are also involved in ongoing research based around skills and education, providing access to relevant and timely labour market intelligence to our partners, working closely with the regional engagement teams to ensure the strategic fit of European funding proposals and building strong working relationships with key employers in the region.

More than 500 directly engaged with the RLSP this year and have provided further insight into what is actually needed in terms of skills. The feedback from Welsh Government on the Employment and Skills Plan for 2018 referred to the amount of Industry input we received and the subsequent evidence that we could show as being excellent.
