Skills Support for the Workforce

Heart of the South West 2020 Employer Skills Survey

16th Jan 2020 Skills Support for the Workforce

For employers in Devon, Plymouth, Somerset and Torbay

We are pleased to announce the Heart of the South West 2020 Employer Skills Survey.

Working with the Heart of the South West LEP, Serco have commissioned Wavehill, a social and economic research company, to gather information on the skills gaps and training needs facing SME businesses now and over the next few years.  Wavehill have developed a survey for employers with more than 3 employees to collect data on the skills needs of businesses to provide evidence to inform the LEP’s skills strategy and funding, and what interventions may be needed in the future. 

Contributions from a range of organisations, from start-up and SME’s to multinationals based in the HotSW, are essential in providing a full picture of the skills requirements locally; this is an opportunity for employers to share their challenges around skills, and influence the future skills development and support in Devon and Somerset.

In order to maximise the response rates for this important piece of research the survey has been developed both online and as a telephone survey conducted by researchers from Wavehill.

To this end it would be greatly appreciated if you could share the below link, promote its completion throughout your networks, and if applicable complete the survey as an Employer.   The online survey is planned to close on the Friday, 28th February 2020.
