2020 Employer Skills Survey

Skills Support for the Workforce (SSW) are gathering information on the skills gaps and training needs SMEs face in Worcestershire, particularly in relation to the use of digital technologies.

As part of this assessment, we are asking our colleagues, business support delivery partners, the Chamber and business groups to ask employers in your networks to have their say! This is a vehicle for employers to demonstrate their needs for future skills provision and help to shape future delivery in Worcestershire.

Thank you for your ongoing support. Please use the messages below to help you to disseminate this important survey among your networks.

Many thanks for your help.




Have your say on future training available to Worcestershire businesses and employers


Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), working with Serco, is seeking the views of Worcestershire employers to understand how they can be supported to develop the skills needed to adopt digital technologies.

Your contribution is valuable – this is your chance to tell the LEP about your organisation’s challenges around digital skills and to influence future training provision in Worcestershire that could benefit your organisation. The LEP is keen to hear from employers of all sizes (including sole traders) and from all sectors. Please share what you think by completing a short survey (10-15 minutes) available at  https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/SMY6PJG before the deadline of 31st of July 2020.

A 50p donation for each completed survey response (for the first 100 responses) will be made to the Good Things Foundation (www.goodthingsfoundation.org registered charity number 1165209) which supports digitally and socially excluded people to improve their lives through digital. Those completing the survey can opt to receive a copy of the findings once published.

Please also share this survey link with your network and on social media using #worcestershireskills.
