We’re pleased to announce that Gloucestershire has one of the highest rates of employment in the South West. The county also has the highest proportion of employees in export-intensive sectors of all LEPs alongside London.
Committed to developing our people
A major priority in our Strategic Economic Plan (SEP) is skills development, particularly to plug the gap in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects, where there is scarcity both at a county and national level. Completed in 2017, the Gloucestershire centre of excellence in Renewable Energy, Engineering and Nuclear skills (GREEN), is a world-class centre of excellence for STEM training, providing workforce development training and apprenticeship opportunities based at the decommissioned Berkeley power station site.
