Dozens of Oxfordshire business leaders gathered on 1 November at the conference with a clear message from OxLEP – it is determined to support an even greater number of the county’s business population.

At the conference, OxLEP underlined its commitment to business and highlighted some of its key achievements during the past financial year.
They emphasised how they had directly supported over 1,500 businesses, as well as ensuring that just under 1,300 businesses were triaged to further business support – including grants, one-to-one advice and business recovery plans.
Following a successful 2022 event that engaged more businesses than ever before, the OxLEP Skills team also launched the Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards 2023 at the conference.
Fronted by award sponsors, the event’s business-led committee and previous Oxfordshire Apprentice of Year winners, the launch showcased the importance of apprenticeships to the Oxfordshire economy and wider labour market, as well as the opportunities that such schemes can bring to young people.
