West London Local Skills Improvement Plan (LSIP)

**We encourage you to view the initial draft recommendations for the West London LSIP**


In an exceptionally tight labour market, and with an urgency to getting our economy back to growth, setting up our skills system for success is more important than ever. 

West London Business and West London Alliance are responsible for the sub-region’s ‘annex’ to the London LSIP. This will be an employer-led, data driven plan to match skills and training provision to employer needs locally. Funded and backed by the Department for Education, London’s LSIP will align training providers to support employers to upskill staff and fill vacancies.
