The Regional Employment and Skills Plan, South West and Mid Wales

This Employment and Skills Plan has been developed with the aim of informing and supporting the Welsh Government’s strategic approach to the delivery of employment and skills provision.

Developed by the Regional Learning and Skills Partnership for South West & Mid Wales this plan places itself at the centre of Welsh Government’s skills policy, working to support the delivery of a post-16 learning environment which is fit for purpose.

Whilst the plan makes recommendations specific to Welsh Government’s aforementioned skills policy it is of paramount importance to the RLSP that other important areas of the economy and learning landscape are considered. These include (but are not limited to); secondary schools, careers advice and guidance, shared apprenticeship schemes and basic skills. These are reflected through the five aspirational objectives which will form the driving force behind the RLSP’s activities over the next three years.

The RLSP has undertaken extensive employer engagement to inform the demand element of this plan. Over 510 businesses from across the region have engaged with the process through surveys, interviews, cluster group attendance or networking.

The aforementioned cluster groups have and will continue to play a pivotal role in the identification of industry priorities for the region, with plans put in place to address these priorities through effective partnership working with the RLSP and other key stakeholders.
