Regional Learning Partnership for South West Wales (Carmarthenshire County Borough Council on behalf of RPFfSWW)
The Regional Learning Partnership project - cross sector partnership led by Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council will bring together a range of organisations to improve collaboration and deliver more efficient services to drive forward skills, learning and regeneration in Neath Port Talbot, Swansea, Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire, and Ceredigion.
The project will play a key role in bringing together partners from Higher Education, Further Education, the Third Sector, the Private Sector, Local Authorities, Job Centre Plus and Careers Wales West, to work collaboratively. It will also develop a Regional Learning and Skills Observatory to collect local and regional information related to the skills and economic needs of South West Wales.
A new e-portal will provide online information gathered by the Observatory to assist learners to access services, enable employers to identify skills and partners to share resources for the benefit of the region.
Supported with £1m from the European Social Fund (ESF) through the Welsh Assembly Government, it is the first project to receive ESF support and respond to the 'Making the Connections' strategy, aimed at improving the quality of public services. Further funding will be provided by the partners involved.
