Invitation to Tender: Skills Commission

Invitation to Tender: Skills Commission

Across the globe, we are moving to a skills based economy in terms of workforce and jobs of the future. To help Dorset ensure it moves at pace, Dorset Council, Bournemouth, Christchurch & Poole (BCP) Council and Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) are working together to create a Skills Commission in order to understand the potential skills journey and opportunities / needs in Dorset for the future. 

The purpose of the Skills Commission is to provide an objective and independent review of the future Dorset Skills landscape, helping to shape a world-class skills and learning infrastructure for all communities.

The Skills Commission requires a skills expert to figurehead as Chair and provide high level business leadership of the commission who can claim the national stage on Dorset’s behalf. Particular emphasis will be on

  • independence and objectivity
  • an understanding of the skills agenda and the economy in Dorset, the UK and beyond
  • considering the future picture, based on current trends.

This invitation to tender is open for applicants who can fulfil this leadership remit.
