6 Council areas – 1 LEP and 1 Jobcentre District
£20 billion economy
37,000 Businesses
1.5 million residents
Over £12 billion of planned investments
43% of businesses report skills shortages
54,000 people on JSA
103,000 on IB/ESA
City Deals Background
• A process of negotiation
• Present a coherent view of economic
transformation
• An opportunity to state how things can be
improved
• Opportunity to devolve power and funding
• But not for the sake of it
• Some bold and radical proposals
• Some cautious steps
Our Starting Point
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
LEP leads economic growth
Up to 100,000 new jobs over the next decade
ESB oversees skills system response
Over 300 different colleges and providers
Up to £200m of investments
Complex competitive landscape
Sectoral balance of training changes little
High levels of unemployment
Significant lags in skills at all levels
Huge opportunities
Our Skills Gaps
If the Liverpool City Region mirrored the England
average it would have approximately:
• 29,150 more people qualified to level 2+
• 73,270 more people qualified to level 4+
• 32,900 fewer people with no qualifications

Why Skills for Growth?
The Liverpool City Region has a jobs deficit of around
90,000
but it also has the potential to create 100,000 new jobs
over the coming decade
If we do not get the skills of our workforce right
businesses will either not create these jobs or have to
import the skills they need.

Why is this?
•
•
•
•
•
•
Lack of clarity from demand-side (employers)
Lack of involvement of demand-side (employers)
Supply-side choices (individuals)
Supplier push of existing capacity (providers)
Provider freedoms still embryonic (providers)
Funding incentives (government)

Payment by Results in Skills
“Design, test and pilot a “payment by results”
system within elements of Adult Skills Funding
in the Liverpool City Region: this will link the
payments providers receive to the progression
learning; employment; and/or wage gains of
the individuals to whom they provide services
to. Movement from designing and testing to
full scale will require Ministerial and City
Region agreement in advance of the 2013-14
academic year.”
