Evidence base

We have developed a robust evidence base which identifies key issues in driving a balanced, skilled and inclusive labour market.

We have commissioned a range of studies to create a comprehensive evidence base.

We have drawn together the key priorities and objectives from the range of studies and identified common themes and issues. This has formed the basis of the Lancashire Skills and Employment Strategic Framework.

We have also worked in partnership with the National Careers Service to produce Labour Market Information (LMI) fact sheets for each of our priority sectors in Lancashire.

The reports from the studies and the LMI fact sheets are provided below for partners and stakeholders to access and use.

Seven sector studies focusing on areas of high replacement demand and growth potential. It should be noted that the sector studies are executive summaries and the critical issues for each sector are identified in in them.
