THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar will discuss the future for Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) following the Strengthened Local Enterprise Partnerships Review which sets out plans to reform accountability and boost performance.
Delegates will assess the implications of the Review - including proposals for revised geographies and plans to improve board diversity, with the aim for women to make up at least one third of LEP boards by 2020 and equal representation by 2023 - and the future role and responsibilities of LEPs.
With the first Local Industrial Strategies due to be agreed with the Government by March 2019 further sessions will provide an opportunity to discuss the future relationship and collaboration between LEPs, combined authorities and wider stakeholders, as well as priorities for developing these local strategies and the future for regional funding post-Brexit.
