Businesses and organisations across Mid Wales are encouraged to complete a survey on employment and skills.

In 2019, the Welsh Regional Skills Partnerships (RSPs) launched their 3-year Employment and Skills Plans which have been used to understand and shape the skills priorities for employers across respective regions and influence the provision offered through further education and work-based learning sectors.

Councillor Wyn Thomas, Cabinet Member for Schools, Lifelong Learning and Skills at Ceredigion County Council and Councillor David Selby, Cabinet Member for a More Prosperous Powys at Powys County Council, who represent the Mid Wales RSP, said: “Over the last three years there has been a significant change in the skills required by employers to drive forward their businesses in a post pandemic world.

“It is more important than ever that we ensure people can gain the skills employers are looking for through our colleges, universities, and apprenticeships.

“We encourage all businesses and organisations across the region to complete the employment and skills survey to help inform our new Employment and Skills Plan for 2022-2025.”

The Mid Wales region survey launched today (Monday 25 July) and runs until Sunday 14 August.

The results of the survey will help the Mid Wales RSP inform Welsh Government on the skills landscape across the region and connect skills funding with employer demand.

Businesses/organisations based in other regions, are invited to complete their local RSP skills survey:
