The Group’s priorities are currently being finalised, but will include the following:

  • Championing the skills needs of Somerset’s ‘bedrock’ sectors, ensuring businesses have the workforce with the right skills and training, to enable them to continue to grow and compete.
  • Ensuring that the Hinkley Point C (HPC) development maximises the potential for Somerset residents to benefit from employment and training opportunities.
  • Working with employers not directly involved in HPC, supporting them to  manage the impact of HPC on their workforce.
  • Driving forward a coordinated approach to collaboration between schools and employers throughout Somerset.
