The Greater Manchester Learning Provider Network is currently involved in the delivery of the a number of projects. These projects each contribute to and work to benefit our members and the skills landscape.
GMLPN Currently Deliver the Following Projects:
GMLPN and the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce (GMCC) have a shared ambition to secure a more effective alignment between employer demand for skills and the supply of relevant training by learning providers.
We successfully delivered a number of the ESF Greater Manchester Skills Support for the Workforce projects.
The 3 projects were:
Demonstrating IMPACT Programme
The Demonstrating IMPACT Programme was engineered to support learning providers to meet the needs of business and demonstrate to employers that the learning solutions they offer have real value and will provide a Return On Investment regarding skills.
The Programme set out to support learning providers in Greater Manchester to be more responsive to employers and able to demonstrate Return on Investment to employers. The Programme was tasked with engaging with 35 providers.
The Programme involved the delivery of masterclasses, coaching and peer to peer support. We have now taken this model and broadened it to help us deliver our Provider Support Programme.
The Greater Manchester Skills Gateway Service
The Greater Manchester Skills Gateway provided a service to businesses that they understand and value. There are 3 strands of work: an independent Referral Service, Skills Catalogue and Media Campaign, all linked and interdependent.
The Greater Manchester Skills Ambassador Programme
The Greater Manchester Skills Ambassador Programme recruited business leaders to promote the benefits of investing in skills to other Greater Manchester employers – at business forums and networking events.
