Skills and Labour Market Research Project
The Skills and Labour Market Research Project is an exciting opportunity for the Coast to Capital area to gain valuable intelligence and build an evidence base report on the current and future demand for and supply of skills within the local area. This research will feed into and support the development of the ‘people’ section of the Coast to Capital Local Industrial Strategy, as well as the work towards the Gatwick 360˚ priority to Create Skills for the Future.
The first stage of the project is now taking place and an initial desk based research analysis is being conducted. We will be holding a series of research workshops in July 2019 which we would like to invite senior stakeholders to attend, to discuss the data and collect qualitative feedback to supplement the data in the final report.
The workshops will be geographically focused and locations have been chosen across the LEP area. Please register to attend the workshop that is most geographically relevant to you.
The dates, timings and locations will be as follows:

"As MP for Mid Sussex I believe passionately in the importance of a vibrant local business community in order to create and sustain fantastic opportunities that enable people to meet their responsibilities, prosper and fulfil their potential. I am committed to collaborating with BHBPA and others to be an effective collective voice for Burgess Hill."
"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
