As I wrote yesterday in my blog, we have benefited from the LSIP documents which Sussex Chamber of Commerce has just published. The LSIP term relates to Local Skills Improvement Plan Trailblazer. The large number of people involved in its development has been very significant and they have come from across the whole of Sussex. We know that all of the Sussex MPs have been invited to participate and some of them have done so. However so far only Sally-Ann Hart from the Hastings and Rye constituency have mentioned LSIP in the House of Commons. So when the other 15 return to Parliament on the 19th of April, could you please all raise your responses and your support for the work we have done. Sally-Ann stated about LSIP back on the 14th of January during a discussion on Clause 1 – Extension of Duty to provide careers guidance in Schools. The discussion is available here and her comment is as follows:
I am delighted that East Sussex College in Hastings was part of the successful Sussex-wide application under the skills accelerator programme for a joint local skills improvement plan and strategic development fund pilot. I have been listening in to some of the LSIP virtual meetings to go through the various areas, including manufacturing and engineering, and it is fascinating to see the research and evidence that they have built up.
