The Oxfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership (OxLEP) brings together business, the universities, colleges, research facilities and local authorities in our area.
Our Strategic Economic Plan (SEP) sets out our ambition for Oxfordshire to 2030 – to drive accelerated economic growth to meet the needs of our science and knowledge rich economy placing Oxfordshire at the forefront of the UK’s global growth ambitions. Our Skills Strategy provides details on building our 21st century skills ecosystem.
Due to a project change, OxLEP wishes to invite potential skills capital projects (to complete no later than March 2021) through a competitive process which will be based around the needs in the people thematic area in the Strategic Economic Plan and our Skills Strategy:
The maximum capital funding available is £534,610 which must be matched on a minimum 1:1 basis. Due to tight timescales, priority will be given to projects with low planning and state aid risks associated.
