Skills Funding Fill Vacancies

THE £200 million of funding recently announced by the UK Government to create Local Skills Improvement Plans (LSIPs) is excellent news for logistics, providing the funding is allocated correctly, said Logistics UK, whose Jonathan Walker urged clarity from government and local organisations.
“LSIPs have the potential to support the growth of the UK’s logistics sector, which underpins every area of the economy. Employers have struggled for some time to fill vacancies in a number of roles, including vehicle technicians and HGV drivers. It is imperative that any investment is targeted to ensure the skills gaps do not widen any further,” he said.
“With LSIPs focused on priority industries in their areas, Logistics UK is urging local and national stakeholders to consider the importance of logistics to all industries. The figures released in an ONS survey back up the fact that logistics employers are struggling to fill vacancies.”
