Our work in action

Our work in action

We believe that we have played a fundamental, key role in supporting our business community during one of the most-difficult economic periods, not only experienced in the UK but globally too.

We have worked hard to understand the barriers – and indeed, the opportunities – experienced by Oxfordshire businesses and have tirelessly adjusted our own programmes to ensure they best meet what our business community need.

Whether it be direct business support, presenting Oxfordshire as a highly-desirable area to invest, or securing a range of capital investments, we have helped the Oxfordshire economy to remain robust and agile in the face of one of the worst fiscal crises ever-faced.

Take a look at just some of our work in action.

"Very few organisations have been immune to the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic and – given this backdrop – I have been extremely proud of the role our team has played in supporting thousands of Oxfordshire businesses."

And don't just take our word for it...

Apprenticeships provide young people with the opportunity to gain new skills and 'on-the-job' experience, whilst earning a fair wage and obtaining an industry-specific qualification.

In a post-COVID economy, it is vital that our business community understand the value of apprenticeships and what they can bring to our economy. 

Faciliated by OxLEP, the annual Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards are driven by a committed group of business leaders eager to emphasise to Oxfordshire businesses the opportunities that are available through apprenticeships.

Despite not being able to host an in-person event in 2020, business leaders celebrated 'digitally' as we brought them together with the county's best apprentices for the Oxfordshire Apprentieship Awards.
