About Us

Tackling local digital skills challenges and building thriving and inclusive local economies.

The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, or DCMS, is working with Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) and Combined Authorities (CAs) to help establish Local Digital Skills Partnerships (Local DSPs) across the country to tackle local digital skills challenges and build thriving and inclusive local economies. The South East LEP is one of 7 pilots nationally.

We are working to give a clear employer voice on skills and to ensure an understanding of current and future skills needs and labour market challenges.

The Department for Education has also established Skills Advisory Panels in partnership with LEPs and combined authorities to give a clear employer voice on skills and to ensure an understanding of current and future skills needs and labour market challenges. South East Skills brings together the wealth of information and resources being gathered by both to make this as accessible as possible for the local area.
