Priority sectors and objectives
The task groups address the skills and employment priorities in each of the following sectors:
- creative and digital
- engineering and advanced manufacturing
- health and social care
- land-based industries
- visitor economy.
The task groups allow everyone to collaborate on the planning of future skills and employment strategies for East Sussex. This ensures that local needs for each sector are being prioritised.
Each group has objectives related to:
- improving careers related learning and labour market information in schools
- influencing the further and higher education curriculum to meet the changing needs of business
- ensuring young people are ready for the world of work
- growing apprenticeships and higher level learning
- helping the planning and delivery of a Careers Campaign running from 2021 to 2023. The Campaign will help adults across East Sussex find work and start new career pathways.
The task groups are coordinated by the Skills East Sussex Team. They meet 3 to 4 times a year.
