People Leadership Group 

The People Leadership Group is one of the LEP Board's sub-groups. It leads on all People-themed agendas within the Heart of the South West Strategic Economic Plan (SEP). It requires appropriate expertise, capacity and governance to oversee its ambitious agenda. 


To support the People (Employment, Skills and Social Inclusion) work theme for the Heart of the South West LEP.


  • To develop and monitor the People theme of the Strategic Economic Plan (SEP) and EU SIF
  • To oversee the delivery of the People theme within the EU SIF (will report to wider LEP EU governance)
  • To ensure private sector / employer priorities are represented throughout all plans and strategies
  • Linking with relevant and appropriate stakeholders both in and out of region.

The HotSW LEP have identified that independent, impartial Careers, Information, Advice and Guidance is important to supporting people to make informed choices about their future. We have produced a set of standards that we encourage all providers to use when delivering a service of this sort.
