What we do

Surrey Chambers of Commerce has been designated as the Employer Representative Body (ERB) to create a Local Skills Improvement Plan (LSIP) covering Surrey and North and Mid-Hampshire, funded by the Department for Education. 

LSIPs are designed to put employers at the heart of the skills system and ensure that local businesses’ voices are heard to help influence and shape local skills and training provision. It is the first time we have had access to resources that will allow us to reach out into the business community and amplify the voices of employers and sectors that struggle the most to be heard. We will work collaboratively to articulate the needs of local businesses and set out the key priorities and actions needed to ensure the local skills system is more responsive to their needs.
